INTRO:

I typically teach all about the market and spend a good week going over everything. I bring in day traders as guest speakers and really get them thinking about whether this is a viable way to make money or not.

DAILY PLANS:

I have outlined 5 days of activities to be done in class and outside of class. These plans are jam packed with lots going on so that I can fit the whole week of Stock teaching into 5 days.

STOCK TEACHING / TEST:

This is a great intro to the stock market. I typically start with my personal stock story which goes through how I lost 100k dollars in 2001. I bought a bunch of stocks with some extra money and it grew to 125k dollars. I then transition into the teaching part of the stock market unit. There is also a test that goes with the teaching portion of the unit.

STOCK MARKET QUIZ:

One of the great ways to explain the stock market is to have the students read an investopedia.com link about the stock market. This lends itself to some great discussion and really gets them thinking about the stock market. I also have them take a quiz after reading all about the stock market.

STOCK PROJECT/ MARKET SECTOR PRESENTATIONS:

The stock market project is below however, the market sector presentation info is not. The market sector presentations is a way for the students to look into some different markets sectors and to make presentations on what is doing well and what is not. I really like this activity even if it does take a couple of days. I have not included this in the plans. I have included the PPT/KEYNOTE that goes with the market sector presentations.

STOCK MARKET ADDITIONAL READINGS :

(THESE ARE THINGS I HAVE PUT TOGETHER AND ARE NOT MY WORK BUT ARE VERY USEFUL)

I have included 5 additional readings that can be used with this unit or passed out for HW. Here are the topics that I have included:

1. Purchasing Stock
2. Reading a stock table
3. Researching a company
4. Understanding market indexes
5. Understanding the paper

VIDEOS :

I have also included some of the best videos for teaching the Stock Market. You will not be disappointed as I have given more than 2 weeks of resources to use at your discretion.

STOCK MARKET PROJECT DESCRIPTION


Then we play the stock market game. I use Cal State Fullerton's version as it does cost a little money but is well worth it.

SMS CALIFORNIA SIMS

The students play in teams of 3-5 and meet once a week to make trades. The goal is to make money as quickly as possible in the 10 week time period. I have all sorts of other resources that I will be posting with this or you can buy the ECONOMICS BUNDLE and you will get everything immediately

STOCK MARKET PROJECT

This is a great project that has students do a number of different things with their stocks and investing their money.
I break this project down into 3 steps that the students can complete in about 3 weeks.

This project can be done individually or in a group. Recently I have been having my students do it in their stock groups. It cuts down on the grading and I am not sure if they learn any less, so I will continue to do it as a group.

STEP 1:

The first step is the students get to analyze their stocks that they bought over the last 10 weeks. They must do a number of different things with each stock in order to complete the task for STEP 1. I tell the students that however many student there are in the group, that is how many stocks must be researched for this step. I have included a sample of what this step looks like in the project.

STEP 2:

The second step is a series of portfolio questions that they will all answer together as a group. There are 9 questions in total and will allow the students to reflect on the last 10 weeks.

STEP 3:

The third step is all about individual research regarding what they would actually do if they inherited a bunch of money(100k). They also must interview others about what they would do if they were given a certain amount of money. This is my favorite part of the project as it gets them to think about a real world situation.

The last thing I have included is a rubric for the project. It is simple and to the point, but gets the job done.

I do have the groups turn in their projects together so they are quiet large by the time that I get them.
