Professional Development

NGPF On-Demand is a professional development opportunity that allows teachers to deepen their content knowledge on their own schedule and at their own pace.

One of the 30 On-Demand modules currently available is “Auto Loans.” This module reviews auto loan basics, analyzes types of loans available, and empowers teachers to share with students everything teens need to know to make an informed auto loan decision. 


Here are some highlights from the module: 


  • Watch a video from Two Cents on “How Cars Keep You Poor.” 

  • Learn how the term of your auto loan impacts your monthly payment and the total amount paid. 
  • Read an article discussing the different types of auto loans that are available.
