Personal Financial Management
The students wrote on chart paper under each prompt their comments sharing their attitudes about money. This was a great way to start the class at the beginning of the school year. We reviewed the student comments and a good discussion followed. A idea to better teach this lesson would be to have students fill out a required number of post its with their name on them to place on chart paper. If they place their names on the post is they were more like to write a sincere answer instead of a comical one.

Personal Finance
The PowerPoint Trivia is a great "hook" for this lesson. The anticipatory set really helps to move the dialogue about money. So many students come to our classrooms with a "history" of what their families have done in the past with money (or the lack of discussion). It helps to get them thinking they are going to make these decisions on their own someday.

Financial Literacy for Teens
My students enjoyed the Attitudes about Money exercise. They were given post it note s to respond to the statements and we had very interesting discussion about the money statements. I have several students who enter the class thinking they know it all about money management and this lesson points out just how much they really need to know. Very engaging.
