- Teach students to reconcile a checkbook! Yes or no? [86 comments]
- Hi everyone. I pair NGPF material into the second quarter of an economics class. I just covered the basics of budgeting and was going to spend a few days on college (choosing, paying, etc.). I have a handful of students that are moving right into job placement upon graduation, though, and do not want to waste their time if they know they are not going to college. Any suggestions on what these students could focus on during the college lessons (we already did the personalized budget as a whole class, so that is not an option)? Thank you in advance!

- I usually teach students how to complete a 1040EZ. Now that that form is gone, what form are you teaching your students to complete? As I understand it, the new form is only still in draft form. Suggestions? [15 comments]
- I have an observation next week. Any ideas for a class of seniors? [12 comments]

About the Author
Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
