Lesson 1: How Can We Foster Successful Personal Finance Abilities?

Opening Statements: During this lesson you will explore multimodal instructional approaches on personal finance skills for high school students.

Students are graduating high school without ever having to be financially responsible or even knowing how. I want you to explore the various instructional approaches described in the scholarly article and provide your own thoughts and ideas.
