Teachers will develop methods for integrating pop culture into their existing economics and personal finance lessons. The session will include a focus on helping your students develop good decision-making skills using, for example Batman to illustrate the PACED decision-making model. Other examples include helping students recognize predatory lending by recognizing the characteristics of Darth Vader, and how Rick and Morty can teach your students about money.
