Personal finance is a must-have for all children in order for them to be successful as adults. In addition to basic money management essentials, students will also learn how to manage the risks and distractions this world will throw at their plans. The culminating project will be a real-life budgeting scenario-Planning a Trip With a Budget, which the students will find out whether or not they will make it in the real world with the scenario they are given and with the tools they have...
Students will improve their understanding of personal finance and how it directly relates to them now or in the future and apply that knowledge.
I have been teaching personal finance in high schools for 20 years.
Most work will be done in class. However, the Planning a Trip Within a Budget mini-project may include some very little out of class time.
A notebook, writing utensil, and calculator are required for this class. Any handout or worksheet will be provided for the students before each class in the classroom. Kahoot will be used as a review game tool.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No formal assessment will be given, but if it is desired at the request of a parent, I can offer some type of formal assessment via a grading rubric. Just let me know if that is something you'd like!
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I use the High School Financial Planning Program as supplemental materials for this course and have approval to use it.
