Program Providing Financial Education Experiences

finEDge is a single-semester, research-based financial education program for high school students, created by experts at The University of Chicago. The program’s content and pedagogical approach are based on learning science, behavioral change research, and the latest information on effective design of formal and informal financial education experiences. The program has seven modules (Finance Decision-Making in Context; Saving & Spending; Borrowing; Earning; Investing; Managing Risk; and Financing Post-Secondary Education) containing a total of 79 lessons exploring key financial content and processes. Each lesson features prep information, step-by-step instructions, teaching tips, slides and handouts for teachers, as well as accompanying workbook pages for students. Posters are provided for reference during lessons and to further enable students to internalize the frameworks woven throughout the program. finEDge also offers a suite of digital materials to support classroom experiences and enhance instruction. These materials include a digital version of the program, digital tools, and lesson slide decks.
