Building Your Future Financial Literacy Curriculum

The Actuarial Foundation has released to U.S. high school teachers Building Your Future, an engaging and relevant financial literacy curriculum, to help teens master the foundational elements of personal finance and to prepare for life on their own.

Building Your Future helps students easily grasp the essentials of personal finance, gives them multiple opportunities to practice core skills and showcases the real-world impact of the financial decisions they make. All four of the Building Your Future books are classroom ready with a Teacher's Guide including handouts, answer keys, instruction and assessment suggestions, definitions and resources that align with National Council of Teacher of Mathematics and JumpStart.

The 2013 update addresses developing trends, such as the use of smart phones in banking and the increasing risk of identity theft, and to reflect the current tax and interest rate environment.  Teachers were surveyed for content suggestions and based on their feedback, Building Your Future: Book 4, Succeeding was developed.  This latest book focuses on the important decisions students make early on in their adult lives such as paying for college, choosing a career and making a living.
