Middle School Financial Literacy Project by the Ohio Statewide Family Engagement Center
Money Talks is a project of the Ohio Statewide Family Engagement Center. We developed a series of 5 short online modules (like a mini-course) in English and Spanish for families of middle schoolers. In each module, as you can see below, we provide a short explanation of a money concept, a list of conversation starters, links to related games to play with a middle school child at home, tips from middle school parents/caregivers about the module topic, space to make a plan to talk with a child, and a list of related resources to download.
We are partnering with faculty and graduate students at The Ohio State University to do a research project associated with these modules. We are currently piloting this project with families of middle schoolers in Columbus City Schools and other organizations in Ohio. The modules will be available to more audiences in 2022.
