My students need books to continue building financial literacy including How to win Friends and Influence People and The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My Advanced Finance Academy class is a college prep course where the students work in groups and immerse themselves in the world of Finance, while also gaining important people and business skills.
My students come from broken, poverty stricken homes without much financial literacy knowledge before arriving in my class.
We are an inner city school and I prepare my students for the next level. My classes are full of Juniors and Seniors who are excited about gaining more financial knowledge during their two years in the Finance Academy.
As a class, we will read "The Money Book for the Young Fabulous and Broke" and "How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age" and the students then apply the concepts they learn to their lives and then they write about their experiences. We will also learn basic accounting with the Lemonade game, this way they are able to have some knowledge as to what their college professors are talking about when they refer to debits and credits.
Donations to this project will improve my classroom because in the past we have been able to include these books in the students book rental, however we have been informed that this can no longer happen so I would like to have these classroom sets so I can continue to teach the important lessons found in each book.
Also, the students are able to pick their own books from our class library to summarize and earn points and valuable information on their own as well.
