Excerpt

This chapter outlines the basic fundamentals of managing personal finances for students at the high school level. Here teachers can find lesson plans that lay out the basic components of a financial plan—yes, even a teenager needs a financial plan. Components include setting financial goals and using those goals to make financial decisions in the long-term and short-term budgeting; what all those deductions on their paycheck are; the basics of opening a checking and savings account; and how to responsibly maintain a checking account.
