This course is designed to prepare you for your life after graduation. Within this course, you will learn personal finance skills and basic life skills to help you be a successful adult.
You will begin each lesson in class, and will be given twenty calendar days, including the start day, to complete each lesson. After the first initial class, you may complete the remaining parts and requirements of the lesson in school during study halls or free periods. You will also have access to your work at home. On day ten, you will be given formative feedback via email. In order to receive feedback, you need to have some sort of work completed by this day. On day twenty, you will be required to hand in a physical deliverable (something that shows you can do the task). Each lesson will typically begin with an introductory self-assessment quiz, and will end with either a closing quiz OR a physical deliverable that will need to be printed out and completed. The physical deliverable will be placed into a portfolio in the classroom that will be put together throughout the year. The portfolio will be provided to you by the instructor.
