My Students

My students are high school juniors and seniors who want to learn more about handling their personal finances. They love interactive activities, games, and look for any way to increase their knowledge. They learn best with hands on group activities where they are up and moving around the room as often as possible.

Any time I can share with them a real life example, they seem to relate better to the topics we are discussing.

They are curious and genuinely interested in the topic and want to learn more.

My Project

I would like to make my class more interactive this school year. I believe by adding in games and having students participate in activities that have them up and moving around the classroom they will be more interested and remember more of what they learn.

I believe that the best information my students get is real world examples of financial failures and successes.

I would like to have them do outside reading of a financial book of their choice to get more real life stories and ideas about handling money. By helping me provide copies of several different books, I can challenge students to look beyond what we learn in class and also encourage them to discuss what they have read at home with their families.
