Help me give my students financial literacy books, a film, and book club beverages.
My Honors English students are thoughtful, inquisitive, and compassionate individuals. They are a small group of students who are working hard this year to better themselves and improve their writing and reading skills before college, and they will even earn college credit this year through a local university. We love our small class because it means that we can adapt to their interests more easily.
Next year, my students will be heading to college and beginning their lives as independent adults, so now is the time to help them understand the impacts of their financial decisions.
My students and I will be reading the book The Glass Castle which is a memoir involving extreme poverty. To expand off of this idea we will pair our reading with readings from Why Didn't They Teach Me This in School?: 99 Personal Money Management Principles to Live and Adulting: How to Become a Grown-up in 535 Easy(ish) Steps. We will have our discussions over coffee, tea, and cocoa to build on the feeling of a book club discussion. Lastly, we will use the video player and film to round out our unit.
Through the reading of nonfiction and narrative, this project will give my students insight into the challenges of extreme poverty and unemployment, while helping them plan for their own futures.
