Financial Literacy

by Andrew O. Smith


This course presents an introduction to financial literacy. It is designed to empower all students with the skills they need to make sound financial decisions in their daily lives. Eight exciting content areas challenge students to create life-long skills, while time-tested projects and applied academics create a strong link for students to explore possible future career interests. This course covers national and many state standards for financial literacy. An easy-to use daily pacing guide provides a clear roadmap for the instructor to reduce teacher prep time and ensure coverage of the required content. A daily lesson plan includes background material for the teacher and teaching strategies to support current methodology. The curriculum uses a wide-variety of teaching strategies and applied methods of learning. Projects and lab experiences use inexpensive and readily available materials. Students don't say, "I'll never use this." They will directly apply these skills to improving their daily lives. Financial Literacy will assist each student in understanding money management, take charge of their life, plan for their future personal and financial success and communicate effectively with family and friends about this all important issue.
