Recommendations & Advice

     Week 3

Should you or your friends get credit cards when you start college (or sooner)?

Not everyone
thinks so.

But if you do decide to get one, how will you shop for one
and use it?

 

What do you Recommend?

1. As a group, write a list of questions a student should when shopping for a credit card.

2. Consolidate your research and activities into one website. This site can be one or more of your wiki pages. You'll want to spruce up the front page and include navigation links. Create a page with your advice and recommendations.

Be sure to address most of the following points in an organized informative matter. These points are not listed in any particular sequence.

  • Do college students need credit cards? 
  • If so, how many credit cards should a student have?
  • What should their credit limit be?
  • What are some of the dangers of having a credit card?
  • What advise would you give to someone who just got a credit card?
  • How much credit should a college freshman have,  if any?
  • How much of a balance should you carry on a credit card?
  • How important is the APR and the annual fee?
  • What should you do if you have a credit card and can't make the payment?

Your recommendation & advice page(s) should also include an appropriate image that you have permission to use. 

Review the Production Lists to be certain that everyone has completed all the tasks and posted their work to your Team Wiki or printed it as instructed. 

You can also demonstrate your understanding and knowledge by writing a letter, creating a video, slide presentation or another website, and link that to your wiki as well.
