What is this course about?
This 8 lesson video series will cover the basics of financial literacy including topics such as earning income, spending money, and creating a personal budget.
Students will learn fundamental financial principles and how to apply them to their daily lives.
Why is this important?
Understanding financial literacy and fundamental financial principles will help people build a strong foundation and healthy money habits. If you want to be rich, you must make financially intelligent decisions. This all starts with being financially literate.
What is the course structure and how long does this course take?
This course is designed with you in mind. Understanding that everyone has a busy schedule and lifestyle, the course has been broken down into 8 lessons. The course is designed to be one lesson per week understanding that most students will be learning this as an extra curricular activity. If you would like to accelerate the course, it can be done in as little as one to two days.
Each lesson consists of a 5 minute video where I will be teaching fundamental financial literacy principles. There is a downloadable PDF worksheet for each week based on the topic discussed that I will be asking you to fill out based on your own personal situations. I have also created a guide in case you get stuck but I highly encourage you to complete the worksheets on your own first.
I will be doing an overview of the worksheet from the previous lesson before introducing new topics. By doing this, you will leave the course with a fully completed example of the process along with the worksheets you filled out with your own information.
What is the recommended time to spend on this course?
I recommend that you spend 30 to 45 minutes per lesson.
Within this time, you will have enough time to watch the video content provided, fill in the worksheets and review the provided reference guide. The majority of the time spent on each lesson will be to think about how the fundamental principles apply to your own financial situation.
