"Such a fun and easy class to teach.  Seeing my students buy cars and pay for college with cash has been amazing"

Wealthy And Rad Mentor Manual and Slides - For Groups

  • "Wealthy and Rad" is an intensive, perhaps it could even be called immersive, experience where cash is king, homework is action-oriented, and excitement over accomplishments is celebrated! This lively personal finance class is designed to be taught in a group, co-op, or commonwealth setting.

    This course is cool, like crazy cool! In addition to being cool, this course is EASY and FUN to teach. Don't worry about whether you know enough to teach this class. You DO! Any knowledge you may be missing is covered completely in the presentations so you can learn right alongside your students.

    This curriculum was meticulously designed so that everything from schedules, worksheets, presentations, and all other applications, are in perfect order. Nearly every lesson can be prepared within minutes since the hard part is done!

    One of the most noteworthy features of Wealthy and Rad is ‘payouts.’ Students actually make money by doing assignments and reading books. Because you, as the mentor, will be doing regular payouts, the recommended minimum cost for each student is about $135 per semester, but this amount can be adjusted as the mentor sees fit - a payout schedule is included. This money is critical for future assignments and will allow students to open multiple checking and savings accounts, purchase thrifty outfits, buy and prepare a meal for their family, and participate in other activities such as the 'Double Your Money' assignment. Students will also be investing in their education, health, and long-term investment accounts. 

    This class is going to expose your older students (designed for ages 14-18) to views of money that will change the way they think and act. They will apply for jobs, 'purchase' cars and houses, and investigate colleges and trades. One of the highlights is watching students find joy in being able to help others financially.

    This curriculum takes a generalized approach to giving, encouraging tithing and/or donations as ways to give back.

    Students will read seven powerful books that best support the purpose of this class - to build wealth, be financially self-sufficient, and GIVE! The books are truly inspiring!

    Wealthy and Rad was designed to lay out money matters in a practical and engaging manner. Lecture topics, activities, book discussions, and homework assignments are arranged to introduce and reinforce the concepts they will be focusing on in class. There are a total of 32 lessons. Semesters can easily be shuffled to align with your school’s schedule.

    Associated presentations have been created to assist each mentor in their preparations. These presentations are set up to support the primary curriculum with statistics, engaging videos, and other pertinent information. They will teach concepts such as sales tax and budgeting, have links to external sites (compound interest calculators), and many other links and information. There are 23 presentations that are directly linked to each mentor-taught lesson. Lessons designed for a guest speaker, a field trip, or a large project debrief will not have an associated presentation. You will find these slides to be a great and worthy asset.

    We hope you enjoy the lively pace and engaging student experiences of this fabulous course. You will see the fire of opportunity light up your students' eyes as they learn the key principles and take the actions necessary to become Wealthy and Rad! This is a digital PDF product.
