Curriculum Announcements: Semester Course Update Roadmap!

In June we announced that the Semester Course would be seeing some exciting changes. Read on to see the roadmap of what will be changing and when.


Semester Course Update Roadmap


Note: In case any of these changes or release dates don't match your timeline for planning your course, the old Semester Course will still be accessible in the Teacher Toolkit. You can access the Teacher Toolkit via the top navigation bar of ngpf.org or the link in your teacher account.


The new Semester Course will follow a slightly different sequence. Even though this new sequence was created with flow and scaffolding in mind, you will still be able to modify and use units in whatever order you need.


New Unit Sequence:

  1. Behavioral Economics
  2. Banking (formerly Checking and Saving units)
  3. Investing
  4. Types of Credit
  5. Managing Credit
  6. Paying for College
  7. Insurance
  8. Taxes
  9. Budgeting 
  10. Consumer Skills



Release Schedule:

Each unit will be released over the next few months as part of one of three different blocks. Although the order in which units will be released is close to the new unit sequence, note that it is not exactly the same.


Block 1 Release: July 14, 2022 

  • Behavioral Economics
  • Banking (formerly Checking and Saving units)
  • Types of Credit
  • Managing Credit


Block 2 Release: Mid-August

  • Investing
  • Paying for College
  • Budgeting


Block 3 Release: Mid-September

  • Insurance
  • Taxes
  • Consumer Skills
