Grade 12 literacy in social studies: The game of life

This packet contains a curriculum-embedded Common Core–aligned task and instructional supports. The task is embedded in a 3-­5 week unit on Economics. This performance task asks students to write an informative/explanatory guidebook, demonstrating knowledge they have gained about personal finance. Students create a financial guidebook for young adults ages 18-25. Students will use resources to gather information on various topics that have already been discussed in class. This information will be explained in an informative text, in a tone that is appropriate and engaging for young adults.
