PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Economics - College. I use this product every year with my 8th grade students near the end of the year when they are about to embark on their journey to high school. Many of them are on the fence about school or simply don't see the value in their education. Their eyes are opened pretty quick when they see how much money they are giving up by not pursuing an education, or worse, by choosing to drop out of high school.

The Economics of Checks, Budgets, Stocks, College, and Savings - 5 Activities!

This activity has students doing math that directly applies to their future. Students will calculate how much money, according the U.S. Census, a person makes at varying levels of education. Those levels are:

-Not Graduating High School
-High School Graduate
-Some College - No Degree
-Associate Degree
-Bachelor's Degree
-Master's Degree
-Doctorate
-Professional Degree

For each level, students will find out the average lifetime income, the hourly rate, and the difference of income based on the different levels of education for American males and females.

This activity has always worked well for me in encouraging students to do their best in school -- their financial future depends on it!
