Financial Glossary for Students

Through Jeffery Hill's English Blog I've learned that CNN Student News has a good resource to complement all of the recent Student News Videos that have contained stories about the economy. The CNN Student News Financial Glossary contains words commonly used in stories about the global economy and terms commonly used in personal finance stories.

Applications for Education
This glossary is a good resource to have when designing lesson plans dealing with micro and macro economics.

Here are some related resources that I've previously reviewed and may be of interest to you:
Kid's Economic Glossary
Saving Money in Plain English
The History of Credit Cards in the United States
The Crisis of Credit Visualized
