Paychecks, Financial Contracts and Entrepreneurship

A student’s first paycheck shocks. Money was withheld! First car loans, apartment rentals and cell phone purchases involve legal contracts. Yet, most students face these financial “rites of passage” with little grounding.

During this session you become skilled at teaching a step-by-step approach to managing and understanding these basic-but-vital transactions. You become familiar with experience-based activities such as the Reality Store. It helps your students understand their financial world in a practical, yet fun and engaging way.

Part of the week focuses on creating your own paycheck through entrepreneurship—a core element of our free enterprise system.

You tour businesses begun by entrepreneurs and meet them.

The major requirements for graduate credit, among others, are:

  1. provide several lesson plans
  2. participate in group discussions, projects and activities
  3. develop a business concept paper.
