WHAT IS $MARTPATH?
Developed by leading practitioners working hand-in-hand with teachers, $martPath is an engaging, interactive and easy-to-use way for 1-8 grade teachers to embed relevant and fun economic and financial education in their classrooms. $martPath units teach students about personal financial responsibility through grade-appropriate, curriculum-aligned, interactive lessons. All $martPath units of study:
- Provide application for reading and math skills at grade level
- Are relevant and deliver on New Mexico’s Content Standards—particularly in Math, Social Studies, and English/Language Arts
- Include embedded assessments so teachers can easily track and report on student progress
- Are fun, simple-to-run and quick so they fit into any teaching program
- Are high quality, interactive and engaging!
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN AT THE WORKSHOP?
This training session will include a walkthrough of the $martPath platform as well as provide attendees with suggestions for how to best implement it in their classrooms.
