Teaching Financial Literacy

  1. 1. NAFA Conference 2014 Washington,DC Teaching Financial Literacy Intro Objectives: To coach teachers and administrators on how to properly teach financial literacy that can be easily understood by students. Know your WHY and understand yourpurpose Before you take on the task of teaching financial literacy to students, have an internal conversation with yourself, and ask – “Why am I teaching financial literacy?” Also know and understand YOUR purpose of teaching financial literacy. Know your subject/topic It is imperative to know and understand your topic. We all know that the subject of financial literacy can be very difficult to discuss especially if you are unfamiliar with this topic. It’s important that you know the difference between a savings and checking account, the difference between a credit union versus a bank, just to name a few sub-topics that you will discuss. Prior to teaching your audience, research and be prepared to have a Q & A session at the end of your lecture. Know who your target audience It is important that you capture your audience from the very start. Be energetic, be fun, be excited about teaching the importance of financial literacy. Go into your lecture with the mindset that you are about to make an impact! Depending on your audience (your students) you have to tweak the lecture, or discussion around that age group. Remember as an administrator it is your responsibility to make sure that your audience have a complete understanding as to why financial literacy is important.
  2. 2. NAFA Conference 2014 Washington,DC Demonstration During your lectures you want to have certain items such as workbooks, and worksheets. If your lecture is reoccurring, you always want to include a 5-7 minute from last session. This is to act as a refresher. There are several financial games that you can incorporate within your lecture to make fun, remember interaction is key to keep your audience engaged. (Will have hand outs and play money as examples)
