In this lesson, students will learn about credit cards and credit scores through video clips and online interactive content posing hypothetical credit-history scenarios for practice. As students examine how specific actions impact a person's credit score, they will have an opportunity to apply learned material as they "help repair" the person's credit score by choosing a series of actions that to build a positive credit history. Finally, students will compare different credit card offers for young people, determining which card offers the best deal, charting features of the cards, including annual fees, APRs, and rewards.
