Take Your Middle School Curriculum to the Next Level with Pear Deck Lessons

With Financial Literacy Month in full swing, NGPF is excited to announce that the first four units of its Middle School Course are now available in Pear Deck

Pear Deck transforms presentations into formative assessments and active learning experiences to engage all learners. Teachers are able to interact with students using proven instructional strategies, synchronously or at their own pace.
