Improve Your Young Adults’ Financial Literacy and Decision-Making

No Easy Answers includes 10 case studies. In each case study, students are provided with a detailed description of an individual’s (or family’s) life situation and a decision, such as: Should I buy a car? Or Should I go to college? The case studies progress from decisions high school students are facing now to the decisions they will face as young adults in their 20s. As they move through the curriculum, the decisions become increasingly complex. In each lesson, students work in teams as financial advisors, hired to give advice to the fictional individuals/families described.

From Ideation To Real-World Critical Thinking Applications.

By taking a unique, inquiry-based approach to personal finance we believe that learners will build a deeper understanding of the short- and long-term decisions young adults will face in their lives – and prepare them to think through the consequences of these decisions. Inquiry learning – or Problem-Based Learning (PBL) – has been shown to be more effective at developing lasting understanding and critical thinking skills in a variety of domains, including medicine, business, science and civics. We believe it will have the same impact on personal finance.
