Yvonne has been a high school economics teacher for almost ten years, and currently teaches 41 students who are getting ready to graduate soon. She felt a duty to get this group ready in the best way that she could as it relates to their financial futures, so she wanted to organize personal finance lesson plans for high school students that could help them for years to come. She taught economics in a wide-scale sense, however, which made her unsure how to approach this specific topic – which is what drove her to get in contact with some highly-qualified assistance.
After completing a quick, multiple-choice paper questionnaire she handed out at the end of her classes one normal day, she came to the realization that most of these students had hardly any personal finance knowledge at all. That’s when she understood that she would need engaging material that would be easy to understand for total novices.
So far, Yvonne already knew exactly what she wanted to achieve in the short term, as well as what her long-term goals were. The next move she decided to make was planning: how should she choose the format of the course? What about the speed of the material? Finding a program that’s split up into easy-to-digest segments that can be completed on the students’ own personal time would be the best scenario. This led her to opt for self-paced personal finance lesson plans for high school students.
