Built on principles of evidence-based learning, these twenty micro-credentials from our partner Digital Promise and the Global Financial Literacy Center at George Washington University help educators prepare to teach a unit or class on personal finance.

“Each micro-credential is aligned to personal finance national standards, all of which explore topics and situations relevant to high school students. All twenty micro-credentials are guided by an evidence-based teaching method, implementation guide, and resources where teachers can learn more about a topic to craft lessons that will meet the requirements of the micro-credential.

“Through this stack of micro-credentials, educators will have the opportunity to teach critical skills to their students as they head to college and into a career, including budgeting, responsible credit card use, and even building a credit score.”
