This bundle of activities is perfect for any class about credit cards. If you are teaching financial literacy then use this documentary in lieu of a boring text book. I use it in my Economics Class.
Frontline gives an objective, honest look at not only the history of credit cards, but also how to use them. It will not talk down to your students or lose their interest.
What sets this bundle apart is that it not only gives you the level one questions to keep the kids paying attention during the documentary, but also gives you the teacher higher-order thinking questions to discuss at four points in the documentary. This bundle uses the documentary as a tool rather than just a time filler. In addition to the discussion questions there are also three essay prompts to further the students' thinking about how to use credit cards and what the risks are.
If you don't have time in class the guided watching questions would make excellent homework or emergency substitute plan.
