5:30pm-7:00pm Personal Finance Learning Outcomes Development
The purpose of the West Michigan Personal Finance Learning Outcome Development will be to begin the process of developing specific learning outcomes for Michigan students who take a course in Personal Finance. Attendees will brainstorm and identify what Michigan students should know and be able to do within the realm of Personal Finance upon graduation. We will also share district implementation plans for the Personal Finance graduation guarantee.
In June 2023 the Michigan Board of Education passed personal finance content expectations that students should be proficient in prior to graduation. These content expectations are very broad categories that generally align to the National Personal Finance Standards from the Council for Economic Education and JumpStart. This initial gathering will begin the process of taking the broad content expectations passed by the Michigan Board of Education and developing more specific knowledge students should have after taking a course in Personal Finance. Development of specific learning outcomes will also help teachers and school districts design appropriate curriculum as they design their courses moving forward.
