Chad is a new instructor, teaching money management night classes for working adults who are going back to school to get their high school degrees. Since several of the 44 adult students he teaches had approached him with questions related to personal finance, he decided to help organize money management lesson plans for adults that could help them. He already had a good level of knowledge on the subject himself, but he wasn’t all that confident in his ability to teach this particular material. For that very reason, he realized that finding some external help would be the best route to convey this important information.
During a regular week, while he was having his normally-scheduled classes with the group, he informally surveyed them on the topic and realized most of them had little to no knowledge on even the fundamental concepts of personal finance.
Chad quickly realized that his idea remained to offer money management classes for adults near them to increase attendance in his live training. Since he just hoped to get this off the ground as soon as he could, offering local classes as opposed to online learning would be the best option for the group he wanted to serve. He had to whittle down the main focus of the first money management lesson plans for adults, so he made it center on purchasing a home since many expressed interest.
The money management lesson plans for adults that Chad had in mind needed to be doable on the students’ own time, so he needed something flexible. For that reason, he decided to find a reliable online course that is broken up into modules that can be done piece-by-piece.
Chad had already known that all this progress the participants made through this basic money management program may be at risk if they weren’t given access to continued support, which could help them apply the lessons they learned into their own lives. With the first money management lesson plans for adults over, he felt it would be best to give a letter to each participant individually – congratulating them and trying to help them with inspiration to keep building their personal finance knowledge.
To further help them, Chad decided to offer ongoing courses that would be modelled similarly to the first of his adults money management lesson plans. This would enable everyone to keep building upon the foundational knowledge they had already started constructing.
