Your students’ futures are global. Will they thrive in a global economy? Where will they fit into this new order? How will they prepare for college and career? The answers to these questions depend very much on whether they are financially literate . There are many aspects to financial literacy, but being financially literate in the 21st century is far more than understanding how to balance a checking account, or compare credit card rates. In this complex and increasingly globalized world, financial literacy requires knowledge about global commerce, business, entrepreneurship, and innovation . The 21st Century Student’s Guide to Financial Literacy is decidedly global, offering 17 classroom- ready, easy-to-teach lessons in “big picture” financial literacy topics . Students build an extensive vocabulary of over 200 key terms and concepts, providing context for much of what they will learn in high school and college, and insight into world events. Worksheets, activities, vocabulary flashcards, and instructional slides included.
