Learn how credit cards, debit cards, and credit score work so you can avoid getting into debt and financial trouble. This is a Personal Finance Class.

Class experience

Students will learn how credit cards work and will be able to: 
•	Discuss the important features of credit card use: high-interest rates, penalties, effects on your credit score, protection against stolen cards/fraud, rewards, etc.
•	Explain why paying the minimum amount on your credit card bill is not financially responsible.
•	Identify several advantages of using credit cards
•	Identify several disadvantages of using credit cards 
As a tenured, certified Business Teacher I taught personal finance and classes on credit card use to young adults.  I know that many students, ages 14-18, do not understand credit card basics  (ex.  that interest is charged on unpaid balances ).  This lack of knowledge is unfortunate and can likely lead to young people making poor financial decisions and getting deep into debt.  That's why it's critical for young adults to learn how to use credit cards responsibly BEFORE they use a parental credit card or get one of their own.

Based on my extensive experience teaching this subject, I know how to make it interesting and memorable.  I use video clips and engaging handouts to make the content  easy to understand and remember.  This class is interactive, not lecture based, so students will have the opportunity to discuss, share experiences, and ask questions.

A two-page handout will be provided by the teacher. This will be completed together in class and serve as a great future credit card reference for students. No materials need to be purchased by the students.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
