    16. 16. Financial Literacy Unit Plan Day 1: Begin class with a discussion about students spending habits, how the obtain money for spending, and their intentions regarding savings/investments. Establish that no matter what they are saving for, they are usually doing it with a goal in mind. Contrast that mentality with that of their parents (i.e. They save for something they can enjoy immediately; parents often save for the future/retirement). Ask what students know about the stock market as an investment; correct any misconceptions and discuss the following words & definitions (Simplified explanation here) Investing: means making money available to companies, governments or financial institutions with the expectation of earning a return on it. Investments can generate one or a combination of three types of return: interest, dividends and capital gains. Interest: is a set or floating amount that an investor is paid on a specific date or set of dates. It's expressed as a percentage of the overall investment. Typically, interest is earned on investments like bonds and term deposits. Compound interest is interest on interest. For example, when a bank pays you interest, that amount is added to the account balance. If you make no withdrawals or deposits until the next interest payment the following month, that payment will be calculated based on the balance that includes the bank's deposit into your account. Dividends: are paid by companies to shareholders. For each share you own, you receive a sum of money. Dividend amounts are determined and paid at the discretion of the company. They are not guaranteed, and companies only pay them when they are earning profits. Capital Gains/Losses: is the difference between what you pay for an investment and what you make when you sell it. If you buy a stock for $10 and sell it for $10.50, you will make a $0.50 capital gain. If you buy a stock for $10 and sell it for $9.50, you will have a $0.50 capital loss. Provide students with $10,000 hypothetical dollars; allow them the remainder of the period to research different companies and decide where they want to invest their money.
