The following lesson plans were developed and peer reviewed for MakeCentsWV by current West Virginia teachers. Each lesson plan is mapped to WV standards and follows the “5 E’s Instructional Model” (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate). You are encouraged to use these lesson plans and make them your own.

All teachers implementing a MakeCentsWV Lesson Plan in the classroom should complete the following survey to provide feedback and input for future work. The survey is available here.

Please consider sharing your feedback, experiences, videos, and photos with us as you teach these lessons in your students by emailing makecentswv@educationalliance.org.
