The Basics of Saving and Investing: Investor Education 2020 guide is an investor education and protection teaching guide. It was developed for high school teachers, however its content lends itself to all kinds of investor education and protection initiatives including college courses, work place education, after school programs, seminars for adults and seniors, etc.
The Basics guide is entirely focused on investor education and protection. Based on our research of current financial curriculums, the focus on investing and the inclusion of an entire unit on investor protection makes The Basics guide unique among the national curriculums available today.
The Basics guide is divided into four units plus an appendix. The four unit titles are: Getting Started, Introduction to Financial Markets, Making a Financial/Investment Plan, and Investment Fraud.
Investor Protection Trust President Don Blandin said: “State securities agencies are leaders in investor education on a statewide basis as well as nationally through such organizations as the Investor Protection Trust. ‘The Basics of Saving and Investing: Investor Education 2020’ is entirely focused on investor education and protection. Rather than ‘re-inventing the wheel,’ IPT has attempted to pare away the generic ‘financial literacy’ materials that are widely available from other sources in order to zero-in on our mission of investor education and protection. The focus on investing and the inclusion of an entire unit on investor protection makes the ‘Basics’ guide unique among the teaching curriculums that are available today. We encourage educators everywhere to check out this excellent new resource.”
“The Basics of Saving and Investing” is divided into four units plus an appendix. The four unit titles are: Getting Started, Introduction to Financial Markets, Making a Financial/Investment Plan, and Investment Fraud. Designed with the input of investor educators for use by other teachers, “The Basics of Saving and Investing” is loaded with lesson plans, quizzes, overheads, suggested non-commercial links, and other teaching tools. The unique “Basics” unit on Investment Fraud encourages students to think critically by examining the seductive pitches used by con artists to fleece unwary investors.
“The Basics of Saving and Investing” is the third teaching guide to be produced by IPT. The IPT currently has distributed teaching guides at no cost to 40,000 U.S. educators and also conducted more than 350 teacher training sessions, covering nearly all 50 states.
Laura Levine, executive director of the Jump$tart Coalition, said: “Last year, when the Jump$tart Coalition tested the financial literacy of high school students across the country, most of them got a failing grade. Only 14 percent of them knew that stocks would likely be a more lucrative investment than savings bonds, savings accounts and even checking accounts over an 18-year period. That’s clearly a problem; but, ‘The Basics of Saving and Investing’ offers a noteworthy solution.”
