Product Description
FutureSmart focuses on the important Middle School years by empowering students to become the stewards of their financial futures. This three hour web-based resource educates students on the practicalities of daily financial decisions and the payoffs of long-term planning. Since Middle School is an important period for positive habits
to take form and grow, this course is particularly meaningful.

Through a compelling narrative in which students play the Mayor of a town, local citizens are helped with real-life decisions. From weighing opportunity costs, to delaying instant gratification for longterm gain, students face important questions on their way to becoming FutureSmart. At the end of the course, students compose their own blueprint for the future. FutureSmart can be integrated into unit plans and used during class time, as a capstone project, or in a flipped classroom.

This course is aligned with Jump$tart Coalition’s National Standards for K-12 Personal Finance Education, National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies, State Academic Standards.
