Supplement each course with discussion questions and activities by exploring these course PowerPoints.
In addition to the PowerPoints listed above, we’ve made all of this same content available via Prezi.
Every course contains dynamic video content, which we’ve made accessible outside of the Financial Avenue program. Use these embeddable links in PowerPoints during class, as part of a discussion (e.g. Financial Aid Night), on a website, or any other channel you see fit to further deliver relevant and meaningful financial education content to your students.
Use our Lesson Plans to present financial education webinars, workshops or class discussions with your students. Each topic comes with an educator guide for the presenter and the PowerPoint presentation (link to the PowerPoint is within the educator guide document).
NOTE: Additional resources are available to students via their Student Toolkit. Feel free to utilize those resources for your curriculum as well; you may access the Student Toolkit via your Financial Avenue demo account.

Numerous high schools and colleges/universities have recognized the need for financial education and have chosen to implement Financial Avenue. However, if you’re not really sure how to find time to squeeze Financial Avenue into your already packed class or you’re struggling to get students motivated to participate, check out these best practices, which are common to established programs around the country.
Have you uncovered an innovative way to implement Financial Avenue with your students? Share your best practice with other Financial Avenue administrators by posting your idea to the Financial Avenue Facebook page.
Financial Avenue is a curriculum-based, e-learning program, which was developed in accordance with the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Financial Literacy and Education Commission’s financial education core competencies, as well as the Jump$tart K-12 recommended guidelines (applicable to high schools) and the National Standards for Adult Financial Literacy Education. View the Learning Objectives handout to discover what each course covers.
Many states have predetermined standards for how personal finance, economics, or financial literacy will be delivered at the high school level. We have compared the Financial Avenue learning objectives against some of our partner states’ standards, providing you with a simple way to ensure you’re compliant with standards.
Students who are establishing a new Financial Avenue account starting April 2, 2016 will be asked to participate in a short survey related to their financial behaviors. The purpose of this behavioral assessment is to look at financial behaviors of students prior to completing Financial Avenue courses in order to gain a balanced perspective of baseline financial knowledge prior to the program. The responses will be kept anonymous and shared annually as part of Inceptia’s ongoing research program. Please see the Behavior Assessment Key for the list of questions students are asked.
