The 21st Century Student’s Guide to Financial Literacy – Going Global

C21-book-coverYour students’ futures are global. Will they thrive in a global economy? Where will they fit into this new order? Will they forever be on the outside looking in? How will they prepare for college and career? The answers to these questions depend very much on whether they are financially literate. Being financially literate in the 21st century is far more than understanding how to balance a checking account or compare credit card rates. In this complex and increasingly globalized world, financial literacy requires knowledge about global commerce, business, entrepreneurship, and innovation.

This  program offers 17 classroom-ready, easy-to-teach lessons in such important concepts as the evolution of money, the rise of capitalism, currency, venture capital, startups, intellectual property, securities and stock markets, wealth disparity, and global free trade agreements. Students explore the roles of such powerful institutions as the SEC, USPTO, Federal Reserve Bank, IMF, World Bank, World Trade Organization, G7, G20, and  Eurozone, building an extensive vocabulary of over 200 financial literacy terms. Ideal for grades 7-12.
