The Personal Finance Doodle Note Book offers your middle or high school students the brain benefits of visual note taking all throughout their financial literacy coursework! The doodle notes include taxes, budgeting, credit, interest, stocks, banking, insurance, mortgage, investing, loans, net worth, and more!

This contains everything that teens need to know to transition into adulthood and become financially independent. (In fact, it will put them ahead of most young adults who are frustrated they've never learned these concepts!)

Each chapter progresses through the lesson topics with guided notes with visual memory triggers, interactive tasks, and graphic layouts that follow the brain-based doodle note method.

In addition to learning the concepts in a creative way that transfers well to long-term memory, students will develop their own budget, draft career paths, create a personal timeline for the financial phases of life, make plans, and set financial goals.

The 6 chapters are:

1: Banking, Budgeting, & Interest

2: Investing, Stocks, & Retirement

3: Taxes

4: Insurance

5: Mortgages, Loans, & Leases

6: Wealth, Worth, & Financial Planning

This course works well for a group of students in a classroom and also is perfect for a single teen at home.

*Guided audio lectures are now available to accompany each lesson, giving the option for this book to be completely self-guided. Teens can listen to the teacher voice recordings as they work through each page. This free supplement is available at

Doodle notes activate both hemispheres of the brain and lead to increased focus and retention! Because of dual coding theory, the student brain can process the new content more easily through the interactive tasks, visual memory triggers, and opportunities to sketch, color, and embellish!
