JA Finance Park Homeschool Day Goes Virtual for 2020-21!
Self-Guided Curriculum with NEW JA Finance Park Virtual Simulation (Pilot Release)
JA Finance Park is Junior Achievement's capstone curriculum for personal financial planning virtual and career exploration. There are two levels: Entry (middle school) and Advanced (high school)
The new self-guided, entry level curriculum and virtual simulation provides students in grade seven - eight a more independent learning experience. Students will engage in a series of narrated interactive screencasts, video and fillable PDF activities. In the simulation, students will be introduced to the concept of "adulting," laying the groundwork for their future. Focus on creating a monthly budget based on a randomly assigned life persona.
A new advanced, blended-model curriculum and virtual simulation gives ninth-twelfth grade students a more personal focus on financial planning and career exploration. Sessions engage students in collaborative, experiential activities and projects. In the simulation, students will choose their own "adult adventure" by selecting their persona based on career and education choices. During various life stages, they will navigate through life choices and financial decisions.
Each student participating in the JA Finance Park online curriculum and simulation will require a digital device and access to the Internet.
