On today's Planet Money:

We head to Hunter College High School in Manhattan to face our toughest critics yet, teenagers.

Economics teacher Heather Hanemann has developed a curriculum based on several of the Planet Money podcasts. We visited her classroom to see what the kids thought of the show and hear how the economic crisis has played out in their lives.

After the jump, download Heather's lessons and worksheets.
