JA Virtual Professional Development Workshop


Financial Literacy, Career Readiness, and Key Skills For Success

Free Professional Development for NJ Educators with focus on NJSLS-CLKS revisions and solutions that lead your students into the future.

As the official partner of the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) for Financial Literacy and Professional Development, JANJ proudly presents Financial Literacy, Career Readiness, and Key Skills for Success: A free, collaborative virtual workshop for New Jersey Educators with focus on 2020 NJSLS 9 revisions and solutions that lead your students into the future.

The 2020 New Jersey Student Learning Standard 9 – Career Readiness, Life Literacies, and Key Skills takes on new meaning as NJ’s economic landscape and labor markets shift.  Participants will have a greater understanding of the framework, disciplinary concepts, and core ideas of the revised NJ Student Learning Standard 9; the Career Readiness, Life Literacies, and Key Skills Practices, and learn practical strategies for meeting these standards in a virtual or in-person setting. There is no cost to participate.

The Collaborative Workshop includes interactive breakout sessions that bring New Jersey educators and industry leaders together for discussions on how to prepare your students for tomorrow’s workforce, with opportunities to network and share best practices. Plus, we’ll walk you through JA’s hands-on learning experiences and curriculum that meets NJSLS-CLKS standards and how to implement them in your classroom at no cost to your district.
