Exciting news just in time for the new semester! We’ve added fresh teacher resources to our Financial Literacy course, empowering you to bring the world of finance to life for your students through engaging videos and interactive activities.
Ditch the dry lessons, ignite the financial literacy fun for students (and you!)
Imagine this: you’re a middle school teacher tasked with teaching financial literacy. The concepts might seem a bit abstract or disconnected from your students’ everyday experiences. But you’re always seeking new ways to make these lessons impactful while balancing limited resources and time constraints.
We’ve got you covered! We’re thrilled to introduce Unit 12 in our revamped Financial Literacy course. This unit is your one-stop shop, packed with a plethora of resources to make teaching financial literacy a breeze. Check out these three suggestions for making financial literacy a vibrant and engaging subject for your students:
1. Use Sal Khan’s best tips for bringing financial literacy topics to life.
Each lesson starts with an “about this Unit” introductory video from Sal Khan that’s tailored specifically for educators. These brief two-to-three-minute videos are ideal for familiarizing teachers with the unit’s scope and focus before they dive into lesson planning. The videos provide a clear outline of what will be covered, the key teaching points, and how the content can be woven into your teaching narrative.
2. Get your class excited (and laughing!) about these important concepts with videos that represent real-life situations.
The magic lies in our real-life-application videos. Show these videos to your class at the start of the lesson. They feature a blend of humor and knowledge that brings the unit’s most critical concept to life, illustrating its relevance in everyday situations that real people experience. These videos promise to be a hit in the classroom because they get your students chuckling and stimulate conversations about the material.
The real-world videos explain the following topics:
3. Help students apply what they learned through interactive activities.
Our interactive activities are a real game changer! They’re designed to fit seamlessly into your lesson plans, with clear objectives for students. Each objective is accompanied by a brief but comprehensive description of the upcoming lessons, covering key terms and main concepts. The activities are a mix of fun quizzes, problem-solving tasks, and real-world simulations. Every lesson is purposeful and transparent, so not only are students learning, but they also understand the “why” behind what they’re learning.
