GMW Teaching Materials 2018
Holding sessions as part of the classroom activity is a beneficial way for children and youth to get a better overview of money matters, including budgeting, investing, spending, earning money, and developing entrepreneurial skills.
GMW provides a valuable opportunity for teachers, educational practitioners and others to get involved in supporting the development of youth skills and knowledge within their teaching.
We created GMW Teaching Materials in collaboration with Aflatoun International. The materials have been specifically adapted for two key age groups – ages 10-14 and ages 15-18. They can be used for sessions to develop students’ financial literacy and skills, or as part of a wider plan for incorporating financial education into teaching lessons.
What is Economic Citizenship Education?
Economic Citizenship Education (ECE) is a combination of financial, social, and livelihood’s education – building the knowledge, skills and competences of youth, for their economic, social and personal well-being. GMW provides a valuable opportunity for teachers, educational practitioners and others to get involved in advocating for greater economic education for children and youth through the Week’s activities, with the aim of fostering the long-term inclusion of financial, social and livelihoods skills and knowledge in their teaching.
The Child & Youth Finance International (CYFI) Team promotes ECE globally, and has developed a framework for linking ECE with access to appropriate financial services for young people to help them become financially capable and empowered economic citizens.
GMW Teaching Materials are specifically adapted for the two age groups shown below. These files can be used for sessions to develop students’ financial literacy and skills, or as part of a wider plan for incorporating financial education in to your teaching lessons.
