I don’t have a video, but I do use quite a few pre-assessments. We’ve partnered with the W!SE financial group for financial literacy certification and Junior Achievement where we give kids a pre and post test. I also created a 23 question test to help students determine if taking the course would be beneficial (www.AmISavvy.com). All three give kidsa good idea of what to expect.

I don’t have a video that does exactly what you’re looking for, but, if you haven’t already, check out Spent: Looking for Change. https://youtu.be/YAxL4TB6pmQ

It’s a bit depressing and down on the whole financial system, but it’s REALLY well done, high school students find it REALLY compelling, it follows a diverse set of people, and it hits on TONS of topics (credit history, small business debt, student loans, medical bills, payday lending, check cashing, banking system, fees…). Again, it’s not exactly what you’re looking for, but if you consistently referred back to the documentary as you cover these topics in your class, you could make it work as an overarching resource for your course.

I’d love to hear others’ suggestions, though!

Money in Your Life (PBS) was in my school library so I gave it a shot and think its pretty good but I will be honest, I don’t show it every semester in its entirety. Instead I found that short YouTube videos work best and keeps their attention on a number of different topics. The Mayhem Allstate commercials are good when teaching about different types of insurance. I also just recently showed the ESPN (1 hour video on YouTube called Broke about the NFL plays who spent all their million dollar salaries and signing bonuses and went broke. There are several PF movies that are good, if you have the time to show them such as Pursuit of Happyness, The Bee Movie, Catch Me If You Can, Shopaholic, and a host of others but most of the time I don’t have the time to show a movie in its entirety in a semester class.
