New curriculum for teens tackles gambling charity bankruptcy
ST. PAUL, Minn. (11/4/11)--A financial literacy provider has released 10 new online offerings for teens, including "a tough take" on topics such as gambling, charitable giving and bankruptcy.

The curriculum is provided by Foolproof, a consumer advocacy initiative sponsored by 15 state trade associations used by 147 credit unions.

FoolProof is addressing topics such as gambling and bankruptcy in response to inquiries from the credit unions and teachers who use the financial literacy service.

"These modules are different," said Will de Hoo, Foolproof found. "Each module is designed to be used by itself, rather than as part of our curriculum series. But all of the modules---used alone or with our other modules--are tough as nails--and teachers love them.  We have tested these modules in Oklahoma during the past six weeks, and already over 125 high schools have started using them."

Foolproof's entire curriculum includes more than 18 topics in 22 hours of online, interactive instruction.
