I am so excited to be writing my first post. My blog will serve to show my weekly progress of my Independent Study on Financial Literacy. After the first two weeks, I have spent most of my time organizing my blog and setting up a calendar to track my progress and manage my time wisely. I also spent this time to research books that I will use for research on Financial Literacy. I have decided to use “Financial Literacy for Millennials: A practical guide to managing your financial life for teens, college students, and young adults” by Andrew Smith and “Why Didn’t they Teach me this in School?” by Cary Siegel. These two books will be the main resources I use for research, but I also plan to use many sites on the internet. Some of these sites can be seen in the pages tab of my blog under my proposal. As I move into week 3, I am going to start research and begin compiling a table of contents for the aspects of Financial Literacy I plan to study. I cannot wait to get working! Thank you for subscribing and I’ll see you next week!
PS–In case you did not get a chance to view my proposal, the main questions of my Independent Study are below:
- What is financial literacy?
- Why is financial literacy important?
- Why should students understand financial literacy?
- How does understanding financial literacy prepare you for the real world?
