Good morning and Welcome My name is Bertell Davis and I am with Capital One. I work on the Community Affairs team and part of my responsibility is to promote financial literacy programs for Capital One.

Introductory Activity: I need your help. I have a group of students who have an F average in a particular field of study. As experienced teachers, what would you do with a group of students with an F average? At your tables, take 5 minutes to come up with your top 3 steps you would take to help these failing students. Objective Use their improvement plans to demonstrate why Bank It can be a solution to improving the level of financial literacy for teens. Potential Steps they could list -Involve the parents (stress the Parent/teen conversation element of Bank It) -Teach the subject a different way (interactive Bank It modules) -Identify the best ways to teach these students this subject (stress 40 developmental assets from Search and their history working with teens and parents) -Break the content down in smaller pieces for the students (36 modules on 12 areasw of focus allows for a variety of teaching methods and styles) Incorporate more home study or homework practice ( Bank It website for Teens and Parents Note: If other items come from their groups, acknowledge them but bring focus back to the items listed above.

Talking Points: TEENS Teenagers Are Active Consumers $175 billion a year spending 21% have their own credit card or access to their parents' credit card 6% hold their own ATM cards. High school students receive an F for financial literacy: This is the lowest grade they’ve received since the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Education started measuring financial literacy levels 11 years ago. Many teens are “in the dark” about financial topics. Many do not know what they don’t know. Many (especially younger teens) say they can’t think of topics they want to learn. PARENTS Among parents with children ages 5 or older, only 26% feel well prepared to teach their kids about basic personal finances. Fewer than half feel they are a good role model for their children regarding saving and spending. More than 70% of parents say they have spoken with their teens about credit and using credit cards wisely, while less than 44% of teenagers say their parents have talked to them about credit cards. 88% of parents feel it's important to monitor their child's spending and guide their money use. NOTE: Parents can also mean any Caring Adult : Anyone who takes an active role in a kids life Sphere of influence over teens

Good morning. My name is Bert Davis and I brought you some insight into
Talking Points: Briefly review each theme noting its area of focus Point out that “Talk Well” is the foundational theme area for the rest of the curriculum and introduces the idea of equipping teens and parents to talk with one another about financial matters. That focus will run through all the financial theme area sessions. Talking Points: The first module in each theme area introduces basic concepts and skills and can be used as a single one-hour workshop or as the first in a two- or three-session series in that theme While the second session goes deeper into the financial theme area, the third module in each area provides linkage to the “National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education” from the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy. The Bank It curriculum introduces all 29 of the Jump$tart standards addressing financial responsibility and decision making, income and careers,, planning and money management, credit and debt, risk management and insurance, as well as saving and investing Be prepared to explain what icons have to do with the topics Example: Give Well: Lower income Kids give more time than kids from wealthy families - Get data from the modules as needed
Objective To allow the teachers to experience one of the activities from the Talk Well parents module. Talking Points: Model Okay/Not Okay activity from the Talk Well Parents Module 3 On your table there are two different colors of paper: Red and Green Red is for STOP/Not Okay Green is for GO/Okay I’m going to read a statement. If you think the statement is okay: hold up the green GO IF you think the statement is not okay; hold up the RED Stop sign Statements: It’s okay to give a friend my ATM card and pin to get cash for me? I should write my PIN number on a piece of paper and keep it in my wallet A friend asks to borrow your cell phone to make a call An online gaming site needs you to enter your birth date in order to access the games A family member asks to use your name to get their utilities turned back on A store needs to write your SSN on your check A family member asks you to deposit a check for them into your account Discuss each statement as needed. Each of these has a more positive option that allows you to better protect your personal information and your credit. Debrief activity: Be sure to highlight the importance of protecting personal information Train the Trainer Note: This activity was taken from the Talk Well module and the RED and GREEN signs were an adaptation of the activity for this audience.
