What if Elizabeth Bennett, Jane Eyre, Scarlett O’Hara, and Mary Crawley had the opportunity to meet and discuss the societal rules and regulations that dictated their financial security? This interactive session uses strong female fictional characters to teach scarcity, incentives, decision-making, opportunity cost, and creative problem solving. Classroom-ready lessons, a topical bibliography, and door prizes are included.
