    NGPF Podcast: Amanda Volz and Brian Page on Assessing Student Performance While Teaching Remotely

    You are likely in week 1 to week 5 of this new era of teaching remotely, depending on when your school made this shift. As you start to settle into routines, we know that many of you start to ask the question, "how can I assess my students when we are all working from home?" I can't imagine two better people to answer this question than Amanda and Brian who came back to the NGPF podcast to share innovative ideas about assessing student performance. These ideas emerged from their standing Saturday morning meetings with NGPF Fellows. You won't think about assessments the same way after reviewing their Choice Board.  Enjoy!

The absolute best in promoting financial literacy

There are so many people that talk about how much we need personal finance in our schools...well, this guy is doing something about it! Providing tools and education for teachers so they can teach the students. Awesome podcast and guests to go along with their mission.

PS...I absolutely LOVED hearing from the kids! They will be far ahead of their peers because of the financial education they received early on. Best of luck to them!
