Don’t Be Jack: A Financial Learning Game

(Introducing the Student Edition)

It’s more important than ever that students leave high school aware of basic financial terms and concepts, common financial pitfalls and how to avoid them, as well as solutions and resources that can help them become financially independent. This fun and interactive board game brings to life real financial principles that stress the importance of spending less than you earn, having a prepared budget, building an emergency fund, saving for the future and understanding insurance and future benefits associated with employment.

WEA Member Benefits collaborated with former high school teacher Julie Woletz and middle school teacher Erich Utrie to develop a student edition of the original award-winning game of the same name. The game content was crafted to meet Wisconsin financial literacy standards for grades 9-12 and the game play and rules are flexible enough for any classroom format and educational style.

Attendees will experience a sampling of the game and will be one of the first to receive a copy of the game for use in their classrooms.
