Extreme Economics: Teaching Children and Teenagers about Money. Second Edition
Babbage, Keen J.
Rowman & Littlefield Education
What Financial future awaits the current generation of children and teenagers in the United States? Our children and teenagers did not cause the financial problems that confront the nation and impacts their families, but they will pay part of the price for these financial problems. What should children and teenagers know about personal finance? How can sound financial principles and money management be taught to these students? "Extreme Economics" identifies, through current research, what children and teenagers need to know about managing funds. It shows educators how to design instructional activities that enable students to learn about money management in fascinating and meaningful ways. "Extreme Economics" is not filled with complicated or confusing charts, graphs, and terminology. It is readable and immediately applicable. As education continues to advance, the school curriculum might consist of reading, writing, math, and economics and finance. This book is an important step to ensuring a solid base in this emerging area. The following chapters are contained in this book: (1) Introduction to the Second Edition; (2) How to Learn about Money; (3) Student Life; Experience as a Powerful Classroom Resource; (4) How Student Life Experience Connects with What Students Need to Learn; (5) How to Fully Apply Student Life Experience to Achieve Mastery; (6) Student Conversations, Hobbies, Daily Lives: More Resources for Any Teacher who Listens and Notices; (7) A Day in the Economic Life of an Elementary School Student; (8) A Day in the Economic Life of a Middle School Student; (9) A Day in the Economic Life of a High School Student; (10) A Visit to a Middle School Extreme Economics Class; (11) Save, Save More, Keep Saving [For the "Extreme Economics: The Need for Personal Finance in the School Curriculum.
