HONOLULU - A teacher training workshop on decision making and money management will be offered by the Hawai'i Council on Economic Education on Sept. 6 in the Maui High School library.
The Na Wai Puapua'i: Care of the Future seminar will be free for kindergarten to 12th grade teachers.
The program will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and will include lunch and a free copy of the program curriculum.
The program will present a curriculum for teachers that introduces basic concepts of money management to kindergartners to 12th graders.
Each lesson is aligned to the Jump$tart Financial Literacy Standards, the National Voluntary Economics Standards, the state Department of Education Content Performance Standards and the General Learner Objectives.
Na Wai Puapua'i was selected as the name of the curriculum because it means the bubbling fresh waters that well up from the earth.
