Presented at: TESOL 2015

Consumer.gov and Consumidor.gov give accessible, reader-friendly information on financial literacy topics, including budgeting, credit, debt, and avoiding frauds and scams. This session discusses those free resources, new lesson plans, and a community of practice that gives a shared resource for teaching financial literacy content to adults with limited reading proficiency.
