Letter to Participants, 2015 Summer Institute

07.09.13_FinLit-18Dear High School Educator,

We’re excited that you will be joining us July 6–10, 2015, for the TC Cowin Financial Literacy Institute. The experience, a series of collaborative and interactive workshops on teaching personal finance, makes explicit connections to standards and curricula and will provide you with instructional tools and resources to support students in resolving financial dilemmas and making good choices about budgeting, saving, investing, consumption, and borrowing. At the end of the Institute you will have an opportunity to take the W!se Certification Test and, if you pass, to earn a certification in Personal Finance.

Thanks to the generous support of TC Trustee Joyce Cowin, we are able to offer this Institute at no charge. We hope you can join us for dinner that Ms. Cowin will host on Wednesday, July 8 at 6 pm in Grace Dodge 179 with a reception at 5 pm in Jaffe Trustee Room.

Our program will begin at the Cowin Center at Teachers College, promptly at 9 am. The Cowin Center at Teachers College is located at 525 West 120th Street (between Broadway & Amsterdam). We hope that you will also join us for a continental breakfast at 8:30 am in Horace Mann 150, just down the hall from the Cowin Center.
