If you are teaching students about the economy, budgeting, debt, or other topics of "money" - don't miss this site! Highlights include six programs of study (Money Management, Borrowing, Earning Power, Investing, Financial Services, and Insurance). Each program has a 40-page, stand-alone Student Guide (PDF files). There are also articles. Another great feature of this site is that it is also available in Spanish.

There are countless activities presented with each unit. An economics class could focus on one new unit each week (or even month). Download (and print) copies of the unit. Have students work in cooperative learning groups to read through the units and complete the activities. Enhance classroom technology by asking student to take notes about what they learn using Webnote, reviewed here; tell students to be sure to save the URL to share their notes and questions with you and their peers.
