Spoon River College has invited our eighth graders to participate in their “Reality Store,” to be held on
Friday April 6, 2018 at the Canton campus. Earlier this school year, students were surveyed about which
careers they would like to learn about. During this event, the students will attend an informational
session on one of the careers that they pre-selected. Afterwards, students will break into smaller groups
and be issued a “paycheck,” based on a typical salary in their selected career. Students will then be
taken through a process involving money management. This “real world” experience game challenges
students to manage their “money” where taxes, auto loans, and other typical living expenses are
concerned. By throwing in chance situations which can create financial problems, the students will
experience a “slice” of life, and hopefully learn the importance of setting goals.
