Teaching Students Financial Literacy Using the Internet
Risinger, C. Frederick
Social Education, v73 n2 p92-94 Mar 2009
As the author researched the causes and implications of the current economic crisis, he came across numerous commentaries on how financial literacy was seldom taught (or taught well) in U.S. schools. This article, aimed at teachers and supervisors at all grade levels, describes some Internet sites that: (1) explain the collapse of the housing bubble and the "falling domino" effect that led AIG, Lehman Brothers, Morgan Stanley, and others to bankruptcy or financial bailout; and (2) provide lesson plans and resources for teaching financial literacy.
