I start with budgeting and making it real through personal stories. Students can tell when you are being real with them so sharing my story or other examples of people that have won (or lost) with money can help them see the value of budgeting their dollars and giving them a name on paper with purpose.

My strategy includes using various personal finance apps, reading blogs and tips on popular sites. For example, I really like this list of budgeting mobile apps http://personalmoneyservice.com/6-top-budgeting-mobile-apps/! They allow taking control over my spending so I see where the money goes. It’s necessary to write down expenses to be able top analyze your financial situation.

You can be the judge of how creative this is but I tried polling students today (using Poll Everywhere) during my Checking unit. I kicked off class with simple question to gauge student experiences: “What type of bank account do you have?” with four options (Checking ONLY, Saving ONLY, Checking AND Saving, No accounts). It came out that 1/3 had no account, 1/3 had Checking and Saving and 1/3 were in one of the other two categories. This led to a great 10 minute discussion as I was able to direct open-ended questions to each of these segments and understand their experiences. We covered topics like how to sign up for an account, how to transfer money b/w checking and savings accounts, interest rates paid on various accounts, fees associated with checking accounts, where to find information on fees, direct deposit into savings accounts, mental accounting that comes with checking and savings accounts. The best part: All of this information came from students and not ME. Going to try more polls like this in future classes!
