If so, what kind? Just notes, interactive, use on tests or quizzes, etc.

My classroom is a computer lab and most of their work is submitted electronically. I’d rather have them do activities that are personally relevant to them, like creating a budget or looking for real jobs. I don’t do much lecturing in PF.

I am interested in this song lyrics project that MRK posted about though. Would you be willing to share?

I do not, but I encourage them to by allowing some notes to be used on tests. I also have a semester long project where I have kids replace the lyrics of a song with finance terms so notes help there as well.

No and I don’t have tests either. We do a LOT of projects that I believe work as fair assessments. I especially like the ones where the students have to look up information and develop their own thoughts on a subject before we bring it in for discussion. I do bellringers to test the waters and reteach as necessary. At one point I had students keep a spending notebook but that didn’t work out as planned, partially because several students had no money at all. (With parents putting money on their lunch accounts, students don’t even handle money at lunch and have no idea what it is costing.) Even my final exam is a project culminating in a class presentation. I do have students summarize various news articles using two column notes for homework.

I am also planning on using the NGPF assessment bank for a semester end assessment in the future.

I do not require them to use/keep a notebook. I am in a traditional classroom and only have the opportunity to take students to a computer lab about once per week. I stream videos through my computer and a projector and I utilize the student activity packets for students to “take notes.” I use the NGPF Assessments and I do not let them use their activity packets on their test.

I do have them keep a notebook, separated into sections so they can refer back to the work during quizzes or tests. I believe that part of being a good learner is knowing how to access information. I do have projects as part of their notebook eg. checking simulation which is necessary even in today’s age, they must understand how to record online payments, direct payments etc and maintain a positive register balance.

I do not require a notebook for Financial literacy but we have created a group in our office365 accounts and we share documents, links, videos, and conversations in this group and they have access to this anytime they have access to their email.

I use to require 2″ notebooks but have since found that manila file folders work best for my semester long class. Some stuff gets trashed after an assessment but folders take up less space and can be kept in the classroom. I, also, do not give a lot of tests preferring small, short class assignments, group projects, and I am big on using the computers in my room since I have 24 desktop computers. They are great for online work such as the EverFi.net modules and I do a lot of webquests where the students have to research credit cards, banking institutions and the like since apparently “shopping around” for the best deals is an ongoing thread throughout much of the course.
