On this page, we have offered syllabi, course readings, chapter-by-chapter discussion questions, key terms, quizzes, essay assignments, and exams to do just that. Individual instructors, of course, should always govern their own curriculum and be able to determine their own pedagogy. Rather than attempting to build a common curriculum, these resources are designed merely as a starting point. Like our text, they are licensed openly (CC-BY-SA): you are encouraged to use them, download them, distribute them, and modify them as you see fit. Moreover, The American Yawp is, as always, an evolving, collaborative project. We welcome the submission of additional teaching materials and feedback on existing material. If you have any ideas or resources you’d like to share, please contact the editors (Ben Wright for the first half, and Joseph Locke for the second) directly.

Read the Fine Print
Some Rights Reserved
Rating
0.0 stars

The research study examines the pilot of Austin Community College's Rainy Day Savings Program, in which students earned up to $100 in cash incentives for completing certain tasks and meeting milestones that could impact future financial wellness.

The research study focused on three components:
(1) program participation;
(2) program outcomes, including financial well-being, emergency savings, fall-to-spring retention, fall-to-fall retention, and credential attainment, and;
(3) program impacts, using propensity score matching to compare the outcomes between those who received treatment and a statistically similar comparison group who did not.

ACC partnered with the Ray Marshall Center (RMC) at The University of Texas at Austin to study the effectiveness of the Rainy Day Savings program. This research study aimed to provide actionable information about the success of the intervention allowing for ACC and Trellis Foundation, who financially supported the program, to make decisions about program modifications and sustainability.
