HIGH SCHOOL EDITION
Our award-winning financial education game is now available for the classroom…for free!
You’ve asked, and now it’s here! A student version of our financial learning game, Don’t Be Jack™, is now available for download.
Eight years ago, Member Benefits launched our financial learning game—Don’t Be Jack—as part of our financial education program for Wisconsin public school employees. Over the years, we’ve received many requests from Wisconsin Educators for us to create a student version for the classroom.
With the help of subject matter experts, Erich Utrie (Jefferson Middle School) and Julie Woletz (UW-Whitewater), the game content has been modified to align with the Wisconsin Academic Standards for Personal Financial Literacy for grades 9-12. The game, facilitator’s guide, and materials have been evaluated and tweaked to provide optimum flexibility to accommodate varying class schedules and educator styles.
We are excited to make the game available at no cost to Wisconsin public educators!
