Teacher Pathway 1

Plan lessons using themes for whānau groups or option cycles

Nau mai haere mai

The focus of this pathway is on how to plan a progression of financial capability sessions based on a common theme (e.g. debt or saving). We’ll take a look at how you can use our teaching planning templates to plan a cross-curricular approach to financial capability education.

This approach could be used in a range of contexts, for example:

  • as part of a cross-curricular learning programme
  • as a learning focus for form groups or whānau classes, including vertical classes, where the teacher has expertise in one or more of the chosen learning areas
  • as part of a school-wide Money Week programme
  • as part of an options cycle

Watch the video below to get a full overview of how to plan your lessons using a common theme. Once you've started your planning, you can check back on key points in the video using our chapter links.
