As teachers, you know personal finance skills are critical to your students’ future success, but educating them in a way that is as intriguing as texting and gaming can be a challenge.
H&R Block Dollars & Sense, which provides personal finance curriculum and scholarships to high schools nationwide, has partnered with CEE to bring additional financial education resources to teachers across America, powered by Gen i Revolution, an online game that provides a fun and motivating learning environment for students.
“While only 14 U.S. states currently require personal finance education in schools, we feel it’s a topic all students should have access to,” said Amy McAnarney, president of H&R Block retail client services. “Through H&R Block Dollars & Sense, we’ve donated more than $3 million in scholarships and grants to schools and students in an effort to increase teens’ financial fitness. Working with the Council allows us to help even more students learn critical financial management techniques in fun and interactive ways.”
CEE’s free Gen i Revolution game, features 15 interactive missions to help students learn personal finance concepts. Within each mission, students are introduced to a character facing a financial crisis. Students learn about the crisis, strategically select “operatives” and complete activities while competing against classmates to solve the mission.
Throughout November, high school teachers can enter to win the free classroom materials at www.hrblockdollarsandsense.com. From November 1 to November 30, random drawings will determine winners who will be announced each Monday through December 5 on www.hrblockdollarsandsense.com and www.facebook.com/hrbds.
