FoolProof for High Schools

 

In 2007, the State of Oklahoma passed the Passport to Financial Literacy Act, requiring that students in Grades 7-12 learn basic concepts for handling their finances. The 14 different topics designated as standards for instruction are intended to provide students with the basic skills and knowledge needed to effectively manage their personal finances.

The 14 interactive modules provide unbiased* and relevant financial education for students, while offering teachers exciting new tools for the classroom.

*There is no advertising within the education modules.

  • Free to teachers through TTCU
  • Interactive online learning
  • Meets Oklahoma Passport standards

These modules can be completed in the classroom (computers are necessary) or given as homework. Teachers can select specific modules to enhance their current curriculum or have students complete them all while easily tracking progress and test scores online.
