I pull from many different places!

Virtual Business from http://knowledgematters.com/

Banzai! budgeting simulation from http://teachbanzai.com/

Various lessons from http://www.nefe.org/

Stock market simulations that you can control from http://www.howthemarketworks.com/ (updated version) or http://www.simvest.com (older version)

Venture (more for Entrepreneurship, but they do have PF curriculum) from http://everfi.com/

I’m sure there’s more. I’ll come back when I think of the others!

Knowledge @ Wharton (U. of Penn’s business school has a symposium for high school personal finance teachers twice a year that is totally free including transportation and lodging and meals. They have one on the West Coast and one in Philadelphia. I went to it this year and was amazed by what they had to offer over a two-day weekend. It was simply amazing and we were treated wonderfully by the staff at The Wharton School and PwC.

I will admit NGPF is my “go to” source but I do have a few others. Econed http://www.econedlink.org/lessons/1 is pretty handy for pfin and economics. I also use Banzai, which is a game, as opposed to a resource http://teachbanzai.com/. The students do a pretest, go through scenarios, have a game and a post test. The kids seem to like it and there’s enough of a challenge in the game.

I also use HSFP http://www.hsfpp.org/ for some things.

I also use NGPF the majority of the time but I also like the activities in the Minnesota Council for Economic Education – http://www.mcee.umn.edu/sites/mcee.umn.edu/files/mpfd-_units_one-ten.pdf
They have lots of interactive activities. Just takes a little time putting them together but my students really enjoy.

So, this is a little out-of-the-box, but I frequently find myself liking The Sketch Guy on the Your Money section of the NY Times. He’s got a TON of columns, each with a “back of the napkin” sketch, but he’s recently added a Sound Cloud audio clip for each as well. I’ll admit — not all of them are interesting for high school students, and you do need to have a NY Times subscription if you want to peruse more than the “free” allotted amount per month, but I’m liking the column a lot lately: http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/r/carl_richards/index.html

My favorite one recently, which I posted on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/NextGenPersonalFinance) is “Dress the Part, and It’s Easier to Walk the Walk” (http://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/08/your-money/dress-the-part-and-its-easier-to-walk-the-walk.html?ref=topics)

I also like the “How to Adult” videos from YouTube to provide another explanation/summary of lessons. They are usually funny and highlight the important points.

There is a new website called TeachFinLit.org that was created by a group out of Champlain College. Teachers from 3 High Schools in Vermont submitted resources that we used in our classes and Champlain College created the beginning website organizing these resources. Most all are free!

I use a number of resources and change them up every semester but a few that I use a lot are: http://www.theMint.org, http://www.takechargetoday.arizona.edu; Next Gen, of course, and EverFi.net for the nine financial literacy modules, YouTube videos for just about everything, http://www.financeintheclassroom and a host of others. There is plenty of stuff out there you just have to take the time and see what works best for you!
