Invest in Yourself Online Module for Teachers and Students

Invest in Yourself, from our Ella’s Adventures series, introduces your students to the concept of “human capital.” People invest in their human capital through education, on-the-job training, and practice. Throughout their school careers, students make investments in their human capital. Introducing this concept to younger students can help them understand why school is valuable and will allow them to build on their initial understanding of human capital in later years.
