MoneyWise Teen Program was developed to help students develop the reasoning skills necessary for economic self-reliance.
The program includes questions and activities for students at the end of each module to test their understanding.
The MoneyWise Teen Contest (click here for more information) is a wonderful motivator and assessment tool to test the concepts covered in the MoneyWise Teen Program.
The Teacher Guide helps teachers lead students through the lessons with hands on, experience-based activities.
The following lessons support the Economic Concepts taught in MoneyWiseTeen. These lessons are helpful for those classrooms participating in the MoneyWise Teen Contest, where more in-depth knowledge of the concepts is required to produce the student videos.
