2014 TEACHER INSTITUTES

Registration opens Wednesday, March 26.

www.investedok.org | STARS | Teacher Institute

Teacher Institute 1 June 2-5,   Teacher Institute II June 9-12

If a student is going to have a source of income, the student needs to learn how to manage and how to protect that money!  That’s what our program is all about.

Our program originated in July 2005 and has impacted over 23,600 Oklahoma high school students to date.  All curriculum areas and all academic levels are welcome!

Our project aligns with Oklahoma’s PASS standards and will align with Common Core standards effective fall 2014.  Critical thinking skills and writing have been project components since our program started.

We know teachers impact futures, and this project offers an opportunity to enhance that impact.  The Institute is for teachers of high school students in grades 9-12 who have not previously attended an Invest Ed® STARS training event.

Here’s a FAQ from Tech Center Instructors.

Q:  I teach in a Technology Center, so I have both high school and adult students.  May my adult students participate?

A:  Officially no which means they are not eligible to be a report winner.  Absolutely let them participate unofficially.  Do not report them as participating students on the form you submit (our official count), and do not submit their reports.

REFRESHER WORKSHOPS are for teachers who have attended an Invest Ed® teacher workshop.

Refresher Workshop June 16-17,  Advanced Refresher June 19-20

We believe in this project.  We believe high school students need financial and investment education.

I have taught in Oklahoma high schools and Career Tech Centers.  Contact me with any questions.  Thank you for all you do for students!
