Navigating Our Website

I am having trouble finding the Teacher Slides or Teacher Guide (ex. Bean Game, Joining the Market). Where can I find teacher slides for an activity?

 

Teacher Slides and Teacher Guides are found within the guide UNLESS it states in the upper right hand corner of the page that states to look in the Answer Keys. 

 

Some examples are The Bean Game and Joining the Market.

An arcade game, interactive, or video is not working. What is going wrong?

 

Often times, content blocking is due to school or district network settings. You'll need to contact your IT department to see what they can do to alleviate the problem. If the issue continues to persist, please reach out to NGPF at info@ngpf.org.

Where can I find vocabulary resources for the NGPF curriculum?

NGPF personal finance vocabulary resources can be found as Quizlet vocab cards. These resources and more are found in our Quiz Games Library section of the NGPF website. You can go to the Quiz Games Library by clicking here.

 

Note: NGPF Quiz Games Library recently moved to the Arcade drop down menu

Where does NGPF get its Funding?

We believe that every student should take a one-semester personal finance course before graduating from high school. The life skills that personal finance education provides are too important to leave to budgetary whims or fickle funding sources. For this reason, NGPF is funded through an endowment created by the co-founder and receives no funding from any outside sources, including financial institutions. All NGPF curriculum, professional development, and advocacy support is FREE and will always be FREE.
