Students did not understand the concept of deductions. They believe they should receive the hourly wage times the hours worked. This lesson helps us understand deductions and new terms about paycheck language. There is a great video clip to start the lesson.

I used the sample forms for students to fill out related to employment. The students were mostly unaware of the different forms and how they are related to receiving your paycheck. Deductions are important for students to understand why their paycheck is less than their wage multiplied by their number of hours worked.

Many of my students currently get paid electronically. Their "paycheck" is done via a reloadable card or just via direct deposit. Rarely do my students actually look at a paycheck stub. So the TCT example paycheck stub was valuable at helping them "see" what should be on their own paycheck stubs. I gave students a homework assignment to actually look at a recent paycheck stub to see what it contained.
