Over the years, I’ve added and removed items from my finance curriculum and now I’m reorganizing it so I’m looking for a logical order for the following units: (The units below have been shuffled to get “real” results :))

Paying for College
Homes PITI
Investing
Cars
Apartments
Credit
Financial Planning Process & Negotiation Skills
Banking
Budgeting Process
Insurance

Any help is appreciated!

I usually vary the order based on which semester I teach PF. For example, this semester I will start with earning money and go to taxes so my students who have jobs can understand how to file their 1040 EZ. Otherwise I agree with the above order.

Here is the order that I roughly follow from semester to semester:
Relating Income and Education–talking about life after high school, work force vs college, and different levels of pay, applying for a job, interviewing, getting the job.
Money Management–the paycheck and benefits, income taxes, budgeting, checking account and savings account.
Planning, Saving, and Investing–saving for the future, investing, stock market simulation.
Risk Management–home and property insurance, auto insurance, health, disability, and life insurance.
Credit and Debt Management–credit in America, laws and protection, cost of credit, problems, score vs report.
Becoming a Critical Consumer–resolving problems, buying a house, buying a car, identity theft, preparing income tax return.
Once a year we also host a Reality Check for our juniors and seniors to participate in. It is a life like budget simulation.

I start with financial goal setting and creating SMART goals, from there I usually move on to Financial Institutions (banks and credit unions), savings, time value of money, compound interest, savings tools (certificates of deposit, money market accounts, etc.), credit, taxes (including the 1040EZ), decoding paychecks, insurance, investing, and then financial education, renting vs. owning, and time permitting career unit. I vary this sometimes and am always trying new things so I myself don’t get bored. Love, love, love teaching personal finance but six classes of it over two semesters, gets monotonous after a while.
