Celebrate Financial Literacy Month by bringing BizWiz to your students today – at no cost to you!
||To be a financially literate participant in today’s world requires laying a foundation of financial knowledge as early as possible. From understanding how to use the language of finance to making decisions involving bigger concepts like risk vs. return, the BizWiz program will help you to give your students the financial education many of us wish we had as children.
Your students already love money, why not engage them in lessons that teach them how to work together to make more of it?
BizWiz is an interdisciplinary program from The BizWorld Foundation that teaches students critical thinking, collaboration and life skills — all in alignment with Common Core State Standards. During the BizWiz program, teams of students:
- Apply for jobs (Traders, Analysts, Controller, or Managing Director)
- Set financial goals
- Understand risk vs. return
- Analyze various asset classes and risk tolerance
- Invest in stock, bonds, venture capital, collectibles, real estate, CDs and insurance
- Interpret economic forecasts
- Graph market trends
- Experience simulated market fluctuation
- Engage in sessions with other teams
