Banking on Books
My students need literature to implement a financial literacy project that will not only teach them the skills they need, but will allow them to pass on that information to a younger generation.
My students are some of the most creative, innovative students I have ever met. They often encounter obstacles both inside and outside the classroom that hinder their ability to achieve at the highest level. Many are from low-income families, and struggle to have the supplies they need in the classroom. It is my job to keep them motivated by making the experiences in the classroom as relevant to them as possible.
I endeavor to make learning experiences in the classroom both enjoyable and memorable.
By providing hands on, interactive activities, I can provide the best learning environment possible.
Students will be using literature from their childhood to teach financial literacy terminology and concepts to their peers. I am requesting several different books for my classroom to use in this endeavor. These books are popular at all age levels and can be used to demonstrate almost all aspects of finance and economics. By allowing students to draw from childhood memories, to be creative, and to share their experiences, they will not only be motivated to learn but will extend that learning to their families and community. After completing the lessons for each book, students will travel to the local elementary and middle schools to present their projects to other students in the community.
