Credit Cards and You

Overview:

In this lesson, students understand credit cards, credit scores and other credit-related matters to increase their financial literacy. They will read an excerpt from a Knowledge@Wharton article and another from a Knowledge@Wharton High School article to think about why even high school students without credit need to understand the ramifications that a credit score can have on their lives. Students will work in small groups to think through some of these issues.
