PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A creative problem-solving unit that simulates real life. Students are faced with real-world decisions related to money management, budgeting, jobs, taxes and bills.

Students are randomly assigned families and jobs. They then are presented with real-life situations and decisions that they must make (just as their parents do).

Creative problem-solving, decision-making, Socratic seminar, and real-world dilemmas are incorporated into this unit.

Printables: Everything you need is in this unit. It has been created for you.

Each of the 10 lessons should take about two hours. It can be condensed or spread out. Very flexibly written.

Kati Searcy, a teacher of 29 years, has written and taught this unit five times. It is always a favorite with the students (and the parents are thrilled, as well, with the understanding their children have at the conclusion of this unit).

Math, economics, language arts. Easily adjustable for varying abilities.
