 In this weekly blog post, the Curriculum team will highlight Just One Resource from our NGPF collection that maybe doesn't get the attention it deserves. Use it this week or bookmark it for later. 

[The Resource] FINE PRINT: W-2 Form

The Gist: Just in time for your students to file their taxes, they learn about the ins and outs of a W-2 form in this Fine Print resource!

The Best Parts:

  • As with all of our Fine Prints, students can read an article and watch a video to review some details about this important tax form (this particular Fine Print provides an article from Intuit, as well as a video from our very own NGPF staff member Yanely!)
  • Students then answer 11 comprehension questions, where they must analyze the given sample W-2 form. This resource can help students familiarize themselves with this form before they file their own taxes and use their W-2 form.
  • If your students have access to technology, you can distribute this resource to them via Google Forms to capture their responses!
