Access to Personal Finance!

Help me give my students online access to all of the lessons they love -- budgets, car insurance and stock market games for example.

My Students

My students are grades 9 - 12 of all different ability levels. Some classes, like my Introduction to Business Class are of mixed grades, so there is a WIDE variety of learning styles and levels.

Now we are trying to reach some of these students in person, and others virtually.

It's a real challenge!

They love to learn via real-world examples and games. I'd love to provide choices of activities to suit their differences.

My Project

Throughout many years of teaching I have accumulated GREAT materials for teaching Personal Finance. Budget scenarios provided by the National Association of Credit Unions, games from car insurance companies, lesson plans from NEFE, ...

Unfortunately, many of my best, old resources are on paper.

Many of my students will be learning from home, not coming to school to get paper copies.

A document camera would easily convert these for digital access so that EVERYONE can access them. Even those students who select our virtual option!

Doesn't everyone need to practice when learning to create a budget?
