This month, the Council for Economic Education
(CEE) introduces a Common Core Alignment Tool
, a resource to help educators meet the Common Core State Standards while teaching financial and economic literacy.
CEE’s Financial Fitness for Life curriculum, free online resource EconEdLink, and lessons like Teaching Economics Using Children’s Literature, use simulations, games and discussions to give students a hands-on experience.
The Common Core State Standards alignment tool is available for free on the CEE website, http://www.councilforeconed.org/resource/common-core-state-standards-standards/.
