Students in the high school’s 21st century High School Heroes club conducted age-appropriate financial and economics lessons to dual language fourth-graders at New Visions.
The high schoolers planned their lessons by preparing and translating material provided by Junior Achievement. Throughout the tutorials, New Visions students examined regional resources and supply chains, and also solved economic problems by weighing the risks involved and any potential rewards. The High School Heroes also showed the fourth-graders how resources are combined to create goods and services. The lessons were multifaceted with the fourth-graders learning about social studies, math, English and 21st century skills.
The financial lesson allowed high school students to take on the teaching and mentoring role for a day while the fourth-graders learned new and useful concepts.
