Making it easy for accounting teachers to replace or supplement their high school curriculum with a Colour Accounting approach
Note: If you are looking for the infamous Accounting Boot Camp approach to accounting education in which you simply add Color Accounting to the front-end of your existing curriculum, you can find that here.
As an accounting teacher, are you…
- Wanting to replace your accounting curriculum with something different
- Looking for fresh classroom material that delights and make learning easy and fun
- Inspiring students to continue with accounting as a career or major
- Searching for ways to increase your teaching effectiveness
- Striving to engage your students
- Required to teach accounting, even though it is not your main subject area
- Having to deal with zero budget for you or your students?
This site will provide you with downloadable student materials, videos and tools to make your teaching easier, more fun and more effective. You can also purchase the student materials as 'stationery packs' for more convenience. What makes it special is a new graphical and hands-on method, called Color Accounting™.
Color Accounting uses diagrams and logical colors to show graphically how accounting and business work. Your students will grasp the fundamentals of accounting quickly and solidly. You can readily engage learners with story-telling and hands-on exercises. You'll see it on their faces and in their results.
The action happens on their desks and using a powerful diagram called the BaSIS Framework™, available as a wall poster. Teaching becomes as easy as pointing.
Designed for high school teachers, this site uses a South African curriculum approach for Years 8 & 9 but can be used in other countries also. If however you prefer to keep your existing curriculum and materials and just want the benefit of starting with Color Accounting, you need Accounting Boot Camp.
"Why do I like Colour Accounting? Well, you can see the whole picture of what happened, on one board. You can see how every transaction impacts the whole system.
With kids, accounting is a difficult subject to understand - because you normally don’t know WHY you are debiting and crediting things, you don’t understand how things fit together. You’re just going from one thing to the other. It’s quite abstract.
With Colour Accounting it’s all on one diagram and it all makes so much sense. And you understand the concepts so much better. And I love the interactiveness of it.
Just last week I met a boy who is joining us in Grade 11. I asked him 'What do you find hard about accounting?' He said 'I don’t understand how it all fits together.' So I showed him the BaSIS Framework and he just said 'Wow. Totally simplified.'
