Teachers have many responsibilities and a list of subjects to teach their students within a relatively short amount of time. Several resources are included below to help teachers incorporate financial literacy into their lesson plans and classroom environment.

Indiana Securities Division, in conjunction with Indiana Investment Watch created Teacher Resource Page which provides educators with financial literacy curriculum, lesson plans, and resources to incorporate personal finance in the classroom as part of the mission to increase the amount of financial literacy avenues available to Hoosiers of all ages.

The Actuarial Foundation develops, funds, and executes education, scholarship and research programs that serve the public and the profession by harnessing the talents and resources of actuaries.

EconEdLink provides a premier source of classroom-tested, Internet-based economic and personal finance lesson materials for K-12 teachers and their students. With over 758 lessons to choose from, teachers can use as many of the lessons as they would like and as often as they would like.

Purdue University created KidsEcon Posters© through a curriculum project as a resource for teachers to show even the simplest of economic principles to their students. KidsEcon Posters© give teachers the tools to help students understand the exciting economic world around us using colorful posters, fun DVDs, and interactive games and activities.

MoneySKILL is FREE online reality-based personal finance course for young adults developed by the AFSA Education Foundation. This interactive curriculum targets millions of high school and college students who graduate each year without a basic understanding of money management fundamentals. From its design, the course could accommodate all or part of a grade for classes in economics, math, social studies, or other personal finance classes.
