EdPuzzle Thursday - FINANCIAL PITFALLS: Payday Loans: Who Uses Them and Why?
Want to assign videos with built-in questions? We will be releasing a new EdPuzzle video here on the blog each week so that your students can answer questions that are directly embedded within engaging videos. We are excited to share with you a new video each week and a new topic each month!
This month's theme for EdPuzzles is FINANCIAL PITFALLS! This week's EdPuzzle video is from Pew, where your students can learn and answer questions about the risks and consequences of payday loans and how borrowing from payday lenders can actually get people deeper into long-term debt.
