Treasurer's Financial Literacy Challenge
The Challenge - How to use
Calling all teachers and parents! Invest a lesson or two in the new Financial Literacy Challenge to promote the skills and knowledge for your learners to build positive money habits and practice making informed, effective financial decisions.
It is easy to start. Simply choose the appropriate challenge for your learner.
Fortunately, you don’t have to do much preparation as the challenge will do the heavy lifting for you. Though, we highly recommend you read along and participate in the challenge yourself to be ready to assist your learners where needed. The Get Started page link is great to send directly to your learners.
The challenge will introduce a scenario in which the learners investigate purchasing costs and ongoing expenses, create savings goals, attempt to compile budgets, and analyse the affordability and recurring costs of a purchase such as a family pet or car. The challenge culminates in a persuasive writing activity that offers the learners the opportunity to make an evaluation and recommendation. This will bring together the learners ability to make informed financial decisions based on their research and planning.
We think the knowledge and skills from these challenges are potentially life-changing and empowering. But we invite you to let us know what you think. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
