Curriculum Announcements: Racial Discrimination in Finance Nearpods

NGPF is excited to share that the Racial Discrimination in Finance Mini Unit has been “Nearpod-ized”! Each lesson from the new mini-unit has an accompanying Nearpod to make lesson planning a little bit easier. 

What is the Racial Discrimination in Finance Mini Unit?

This mini-unit is designed for students to examine the role of discrimination in personal finance and its impact on historically excluded communities in the United States. It was developed in response to the popularity of the History of Racism Virtual PDs and numerous teacher requests to transform that content into student-facing curriculum. To learn more, read the Unit Introduction and FAQs.

Where can I find these Nearpod lessons? 

To find these Nearpod lessons, go to the Racial Discrimination in Finance Mini Unit page. Then, click on the lesson you want and click the orange “View Nearpod Lesson” button.

This blog post will walk you through how to customize these pre-made Nearpod lessons for your classroom.
