This chapter is about how to teach teachers to teach finance. It considers whether the teaching of financial literacy can emulate the pedagogical approach of Luca Pacioli, the 'father' of double entry bookkeeping. The first section is introductory, characterizing financial literacy and identifying key heuristic considerations. The second section (Parts 2 and 3)-a proposed curriculum-is in effect a two-part model (content and transmission). The third section suggests multiple case studies as a framework for evaluating pilot cases of its novel approach.
