This course will give students an introduction to important financial literacy topics so that they are prepared to make informed decisions in the real world! The material will be taught through hands-on activities, simulations, personal stories from Mrs. Prester, class discussions, video clips, and current event articles.
Topics will be introduced in the order in which students will encounter them in life (typically!).
- Join the Workforce
- Paying for College
- Types of Credit
- Managing Credit
