EP82: How do we effectively teach Financial Literacy?

By Chey Cheyney & Pav Wander

Chey and Pav, two experienced middle school teachers from the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada, take listeners through the in’s and out’s of the field of Teaching, Learning and Leadership. Through their anecdotal, yet often comedic banter, laced with caring insightfulness, they take their audience into a conversation that is surely eye-opening and entertaining, while tackling some of the real, and ever-changing issues that exist in Education.

In Episode 82 of The Staffroom Podcast, Chey and Pav talk about Financial Literacy. It is a topic that has been newly added to the Math Curriculum in Ontario, and many teachers have scrambled on how to teach it, even though many agree that it should be included in the curriculum. What kinds of supports do we need to effectively help students with this topic? How should teachers even go about teaching it when they haven’t received any professional development on this topic? Chey and Pav cover a lot of ground with this one!
