Using Active Learning to Teach Culturally Relevant Personal Finance to Native American Students
Saboe, Lorna
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v106 n2 p22-26 2014
Active learning is a teaching approach that requires students to do something intellectually with course content. This involves examining, questioning, and relating knowledge gained from previous experiences to new knowledge and skills. Native American students have been found to have low financial literacy skills. Family and consumer sciences educators focus on improving the well-being of individuals, families, and communities; therefore, it is imperative to identify strategies for improving financial literacy skills for Native American students. Strategies are described for teaching personal finance knowledge and skills utilizing the active learning approach.
