Exploring financial identity

through English 

Learning experiences and formative assessment tasks in this learning resource are aligned to SOLO Taxonomy to ensure cohesiveness, constructive alignment and cognitive stretch for all students. This gives both teachers and students choices throughout the learning and teaching process.

Exploring English through financial identity supports students to understand the ways advertising impacts on people’s financial behaviours and identities. Students explore the way financial messages are conveyed and analyse spending, saving/te whakaputu and money/moni management behaviours.

This is an integrated, cross-curricular resource, supporting the theme identity and can be used in multiple ways. Related resources are available for social sciences, maths and technology (digital technologies).

This resource is designed for flexibility and choice. There are a range of resources to choose from, so schools and teachers can design programmes that allow:

  • Students to work at their own pace using a student planner
  • Teachers to design a programme that suits department, faculty or whole-school planning over a few weeks or a term. This will vary from school to school.
