Money, Debt and inequality

Money, Debt and inequality

When I ask my students: ‘What is money?’, they hardly ever know. Most adults don’t either. This lesson looks at what money is, how the banking crisis happened, what the difference between good debt and bad debt is, and the current global inequality in wealth. It includes individual and group work activities, as well as whole class discussions, to try and stimulate students understanding and critical engagement with the world as it is. A lesson that could work as an introduction for economics, PHSE, SEAL, SMSC and Careers lessons for children aged 11+. Extensions, start and plenary are included to aid differentiation and the learning journey. Learning questions also increase in difficulty as the lesson progresses. Learning questions include: What is money? What’s the difference between good debt and bad debt? What is crypto-currency? Extension: Is financial inequality out of control, and if so how can it be resolved? Instructions on how to use the resource are in the notes of the powerpoint, which also includes a number of youtube videos, and included here is also a short word document which has some of the debate about where money originated from and what preceded it. This document is made from a summary of Graeber’s recent work and watching the ‘crash course’ video on money. Adam Smith’s idea that barter preceded minted coinage seems, in recent academia, to be incorrect. Rather, minted metal coinage seems to have been part of a ‘military-mining-slavery complex’ where wars created slaves to mine metal to pay soldiers.

Financial Awareness & Money Management Activity Day

Financial Awareness & Money Management Activity Day

As part of my role I have personally introduced a ‘Financial Awareness & Money Management Day’ which is aimed at educating students in the importance of managing their finances and teaching them the significance of budgeting and proactively managing their finances. I believe that is my responsibly as a teacher to introduce the students to the realities of life and educate them in more than just the curriculum so that when they leave our school they can become mature and responsible members of our society I have ran the event for the past six years and it involves year 9 students being broken down into mixed ability groups, given a budget and the task of planning their perfect school leavers prom. They are responsible for planning the venue, marketing, catering, entertainment and every other element of their school prom – with one important rule, they cannot go over budget. As with real life though there are ‘unexpected’ windfalls and setbacks that can affect their budget, meaning they either have to cut back and re-budget or can afford to buy that little extra luxury! The students can also earn their team some extra cash by winning quizzes and tasks that we have throughout the day – students are given problems to solve and also have to use the internet to research and answer questions related to the financial industry, including the different products and services they offer. Students are able to gain a further understanding of the world of finance and the types of services that are available, whilst competing to earn a reward for their group. At the end of the day we give out prizes to the winning group and also reward those students and groups who have worked particularly well throughout the day.
