Saving Money in Plain English and Other Economics Lessons

Economics can be a difficult subject for many students. Banking, in particular saving money, is always a topic that interests my high school students, yet some of them struggle to comprehend the whole picture. Fortunately, Common Craft has released a new video explaining banking in plain English. I have embedded the Dot-Sub subtitled video below. (If you’re reading this in a RSS reader you may need to visit the blog directly to watch the video).

Applications for Education
This new video from Common Craft provides a great, short, introduction to personal finance and banking. A much longer video that you may also want to watch with your students is Money as Debt which provides a 45 minute animated history of banking. I’ve embedded that video below.
