Gr 7/8 Webinar: Financial Literacy in the Intermediate Grades   []

Welcome to this webinar about teaching the new Financial Literacy expectations for the intermediate grades of the revised mathematics curriculum. In this webinar, we take you through the lessons that have been created by Ontario educators to support Ontario educators. In developing the Financial Literacy lessons for this project, the intentional decision to use scenarios was made. Scenarios give the opportunity to have a discussion about financial choices and the inequities of access to those choices. The goal was to provide students with a chance to learn and understand the individual skills needed that impact personal financial choices and also the economic literacy needed to understand the impact of financial systems as a whole.
