Out of my entire curriculum, this is where I am lacking for sure. Does anyone have resources for this topic or samples of things that have really driven home the point in class?

I tackle this with having a guest speaker from a local community college come in and talk to my students about financial aid. She covers completing the FAFSA, the difference between grants and loans and the different types and also goes into a lot of detail about scholarships. She takes two days off from her job every semester for me and talks to every one of my classes. I also follow this up with other things but hearing from a financial aid officer is best so she covers all the bases.

One of the best ways to help students with paying for college is getting the Financial Aid department involved. I teach at the college level and having the financial aid office come to the class and talk with students about their questions about FAFSA, scholarships, work study, and grants.

I like sharing social media and online resources students can use to help them when it comes to finding ways to pay for college. I use Twitter and the hashtag #scholarships to help students look up different resources that are available. Also going through Google can be one of the easiest and most powerful ways of searching for scholarships. Working through different searches with them so they know how to go about finding resources that can help them pay for college.

See NGPF Paying for College Unit. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BZEBeQB9S3soov-9f5EFHZ6eL5IPyWWoBW00g5K_7IQ/edit

I used it for the first time this year, and found it very useful.

My students have found NGPF’s Paying for College Unit incredibly informative. Most of my students will be the first in their families to attend college and they have little knowledge of the financial aid system.

And here’s a link to the Unit Plan (which has links to each lesson plan embedded) as a PDF, basically: https://drive.google.com/a/nextgenpersonalfinance.org/file/d/0By47Aoq6evb8SXZraXU4VC1DZjQ/view

I”m just finishing this unit and used some of the NGPF resources. Due to different ages and levels, I was able to pick and choose activities to suit all of them
