The Centre for Excellence in Immigrant and Intercultural Advancement (CEIIA) is pleased to announce the release of the updated Financial ESL Literacy Toolkit.
The toolkit supports English language learning instructors in the delivery of financial literacy and numeracy instruction to learners with interrupted formal education. Lessons can be adapted by practitioners working with a variety of demographics, thanks to the strong vocabulary focus and useful thematic resources.
Developing financial literacy is part of successful settlement in a new country, and inside the toolkit ESL practitioners will find resources to support instruction in the following themes:
- [Financial] Goal Setting
- Household Expenditure
- Grocery Shopping
- Credit, Debt and Loans
The Financial ESL Literacy Toolkit also contains guiding principles for financial literacy and numeracy instruction in the adult ESL literacy classroom and a placement assessment tool.
