Title: Consumer Financial Literacy
Url: http://www.frbatlanta.org/edresources/personalfined/course/index.cfm?...
Publisher: Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
Description: Recently, research findings concluded that the highest-ranked states for numbers of annual personal bankruptcies fined per household include Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi. In order to combat this statistic, the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta developed a personal finance curriculum for middle-school students. The Consumer Financial Literacy Website displays the new curriculum's objectives, strategies, and tools. This site features an astronomical collection of stellar financial tutorials. The lesson plans fall into four categories: Budgeting, Goal Setting, Spending and Credit, and Saving and Investing. Each section begins with a basic overview and glossary of related terms and includes an assortment of well-designed financial calculators, quizzes, and informational worksheets to help users understand the importance of financial literacy and planning.
