Teaching Financial Literacy

Earlier, I mentioned Mint.com, an online financial tracking program with some great benefits. I might add that the one teacher in the building who makes joking comments about nearly every email that is sent out wholeheartedly endorsed this site!

Another of our teachers is using the genirevolution online game which challenges students to different personal finance challenges to combat the “murktide,” an analogy for confusion about finances. With it’s mission-style approach, this is an engaging approach to teaching financial literacy to middle and high school students.
