This package deal includes the following:
1. Student handout: "Choosing Your Three Companies." Students use this handout to determine which companies they will invest their $100,000 in. Without this handout, students have reported that it takes an inordinate amount of time to aimlessly search the web for company investment ideas.
2. Stock Market Portfolio Challenge teacher instructions/student instructions/student rules: teachers are given step-by-step instructions about how to set up your own personalized class game; students are given step-by-step instructions about how to join and play the game; there is also a small worksheet that guides students through the basics of what stock is (and includes the short-term capital gains taxes as well).
3. Stock Portfolio Student Screen Names: this handout is to be used by the teacher to keep track of the students' screen names while playing the game.
