Another Financial Literacy Resource
Since it's the Labor Day weekend, it seems appropriate to be writing about financial literacy. A few weeks ago, I blogged about Mint.com and today just read an article about new funding for EverFi which has been profiled on numerous media outlets. Their program is free and may be worth investigating for students interested in web-based interactive simulations.
Here's another link to a lesson plan in which students can analyze labor force data and look at future projections and possible impact on their own job searches: The Labor Force: Past Present and Future. Developed by PBS, it contains video and audio excerpts, worksheets, and a detailed lesson plan.
