National Standards For Education:

 

We can reference frameworks like the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA), the National Standards for Social Studies, and the National Standards in Economics. These frameworks provide a foundation for integrating real estate concepts into educational curricula, focusing on critical thinking, financial literacy, mathematical reasoning, and understanding of economic principles and the housing market. Below is how the course content aligns with these national learning standards:

 

English Language Arts (ELA) Standards:

 

Reading and Comprehension: Students will engage with texts that explain real estate concepts, developing their ability to understand and analyze informational text.

 

Writing: Students will complete assignments that require them to argue a point of view or explain real estate processes, thus enhancing their writing skills.

 

Mathematics Standards:

 

Numbers & Operations: Understanding mortgages and interest rates will involve arithmetic and percentage calculations.

 

Algebraic Thinking: Budgeting exercises will require students to solve equations and understand variables (e.g., income, expenses, profit/loss).

 

Statistics & Probability: Analyzing real estate market trends and property valuations will involve interpreting data and making predictions.

 

Social Studies and Economics Standards:

Economic Decision Making: Students will learn about financial planning, investment strategies, and the concept of risk and return.

 

Market Forces: Understanding how supply and demand affect real estate markets.

 

Role of Government: Discussion on zoning laws, property taxes, and the regulatory environment affecting real estate.

Financial Literacy Standards:

 

Personal Financial Literacy: Key concepts such as saving, investing, credit management, and the importance of insurance will be covered.

Career and Technical Education (CTE) Standards:

Entrepreneurial Skills: Developing an entrepreneurial mindset and skills necessary for starting and managing real estate investments.

Integration into School Curriculum:

 

Interdisciplinary Approach: The course can be integrated into existing subjects, such as Math (budgeting and financial calculations), ELA (reading and writing about real estate topics), and Social Studies/Economics (understanding the housing market and economic principles).

 

Project-Based Learning: Students can engage in projects that simulate real-world real estate investment scenarios, enhancing their problem-solving and decision-making skills.

Assessment:

 

Performance-Based Assessments: Students can be assessed through presentations, projects, and portfolios that demonstrate their understanding of real estate concepts and their ability to apply them in practical scenarios.

 

Reflection and Discussion: Encourage students to reflect on their learning experiences and participate in discussions about the impact of real estate on the economy and society.

 

Students not only gain specific knowledge about real estate investing but also develop broader skills in financial literacy, critical thinking, and economic understanding that are applicable in various aspects of their lives and future careers.


Learning Outcomes: By the end of this course, participants will have a foundational understanding of real estate dynamics, the ability to make informed decisions in property investments, and a practical approach to budgeting and financing in real estate.
