Using the Real World Classrooms Model When Teaching Finance

The CoolCatTeacher

The Real-World Classroom model of teaching finance is part simulation part game. It was hard, but, you know, you learn a lot through a situation like that. One of the things I learned was that there were pretty glaring holes in the education system when it came to personal financing. We even have a random factor called “life happens” where regularly they would play a game where a it picks a student at random and then a random scenario occurs, and the kid has to deal with it.
