Event Groups: • A Call To College - PEAK
Description: Reality Store is a simulation game in which the students assume an adult identity.  Although all students will be 28 years old for purposes of the game, each will be randomly assigned a level of educational attainment, an occupation, monthly earnings and certain life/family characteristics (married, single, children, smoker/non-smoker).  Through participating in Reality Store and the two classroom lessons that precede it, students will learn some valuable lessons: how to budget, how much it “costs to live,” that education is highly correlated with earning power and most importantly, the serious financial consequences of dropping out of high school.
Location: Heritage Middle School
