    I will be teaching Personal Finance at the high school level this fall using Practical Money Skills. This curriculum is excellent! Well constructed and meets the state standards. I highly recommend this to every teacher who will be teaching Personal Finance - a required high school course in many states.

    Great resource for high schoolers. Perhaps you can create a money skills resource for younger children regarding budgeting, saving, investing, etc. Locola

    As expected, Practical Money Skills has developed a user-friendly financial education product. I didn't expect anything less from the creators of "Financial Football" and "Financial Soccer"!
  • Great resource,

    By Mimi Gaga
    I used the Practical Money Skills lessons in my classroom last year. They have adapted the lessons based on grade level and ability. I teach special education and much of my time is spent modifying and adapting lesson plans. I am very excited to have the curriculum in iBook format.
  • EXCELLENT Resource!!

    By ginalynn74
    I'm going to make my 10th grader go through these lessons! I don't know if there is anything like this offered at his school, but this is a great opportunity for him to learn some important "life lessons" over the summer. Very teen appropriate! Thank you!
  • Outstanding financial curriculum

    By Emvargas
    I am very impressed by the curriculum, and can't wait to use it in the classroom! It seems the curriculum team thought of every aspect of todays classroom when designing the lessons. It touched on much needed topics such as debt, financial goals, financing a car, identify theft, and much more. The curriculum implements technology in the classroom by including lessons that use tablets (iPads), as well as providing links to online resources and related articles. I especially like how the links are short, however I still need to check their relevance. Each lesson also has a writing component and suggestions for guest speakers. The teacher's tips were awesome, and suggested other great classroom resources for the tech savvy teacher such as Polleverywhere. Lastly, the curriculum also included ELA standards which is very important considering the demographics of many schools in states such as Texas, California, and Florida. My only complaint is teachers tips such as "What is the essential question?" should be included at the beginning of the book, to explain the different components of the lessons.
