Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will gain confidence about managing finances.
Students will learn how to write and cash a check.
Students will gain understanding about credit.
Students will learn about taxes. 
I have a Master's Degree in Adolescent Social Studies Education. My inspiration and interest in this topic come from my 12th grade math class; unlike most math classes in high school, this class was solely dedicated to learning real life math. From there, I went on to teach financial literacy in elementary schools, and I am excited to teach this to young adults so they can feel confident about money. I have taught so many of my friends (and my husband- who has an engineering degree!) how to do simple things like write checks. I hope that with this class that will happen less often in the future! 
Students must keep up with their register throughout the class. This includes integrating daily spending, like Starbucks runs.
Students should submit their up to date register before each class. 
 2 files available upon enrollment
There are 2 documents in the classroom that students must print. Students should have them, plus a calculator and a pen/pencil for each class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
