Making an inherently 'bland' topic engaging for your students is a tricky task.

Ensuring Impact & Effectiveness

Knowing what to teach and how effective it will be can be impossible!

Curriculum Fit?

FinLit is scattered across the National curriculum. How can you justify fitting it in?

Responsibility confusion

Financial literacy fits across many subjects & year levels. Who's teaching it?

Technical Knowledge

Dealing with your own money is tough. Teaching it can seem even tougher!

...which work together, along a linear content syllabus.

How does the program work from a teaching perspective? 👀

Once you have decided how teachers and students will access the program, now comes the fun part, teaching the content!

📝 First, the content structure...

The program is structured into:

> 3 micro-credentials
> 9 topics
> 27 (40-60 minute) lessons 
> 108 learning chapters

📝 Next, what is a learning chapter?

 Learning chapters are the building blocks of this program. Each of the 108 learning chapters are structured identically, made up of two parts... 

1. A bite size section of content explaining a core concept.
2. A set of short activities which test, expand and enrich the focus concept.

Learning chapters take 5-15 minutes to complete. They have been designed to be completed either in isolation as a quick learning effort, or within the context of one of the program's 27 lessons (4 learning chapters per lesson).

📝 What does a learning chapter look like?

  1. Using the textbook, a learning chapter is a portion of illustrated text, accompanied by a set of worksheet-style activities.
  2. Using lesson packs, a learning chapter is housed in a set of powerpoint slides. The theory section takes the form of 2-5 minute video. Activities are presented in the powerpoint slides. Completion of these activities can be done as a group or individually... Using the textbook, or the printable worksheets. 

Whether students complete a learning chapter independently via their textbooks (digital or hardcopy)... Or it's completed it as a classroom lesson, the program accommodates for your preferred completion method. 

📝 What exactly is a "Teacher Lesson Pack"?

A Teacher Lesson Pack is a ready-to-go set of files with everything you need to deliver an engaging and effective lesson! Inside each Lesson Pack is...

  • Editable Lesson Powerpoint (centred around curriculum objectives)
  • Editable Worksheet
  • 4 x Content Videos
  • 4 x Student activities (group & individual completion options) 
  • End of Lesson Quiz + Completion Certificate
  • Lesson Plan including teaching support, discussion questions, extension materials.
  • Additional fifth activity aligned specifically to lesson curriculum objective

📝 What exactly is the Mandy Money Textbook?

📝 How do the textbook & teacher pass work together?

You are able to interchange seamlessly between the two delivery styles depending on whether you are teaching in the classroom or assigning for independent completion.
