Registration and Class Set-Up Is Easy!
Once a teacher has registered on the site, there are really just 2 steps:
First, Create A Class! Each teacher creates a custom stock market contest for their class by selecting the trading dates, initial cash balance, securities allowed, commission structure, and diversification rule.
Next, Add Custom Learning Units! Each teacher reviews the embedded curriculum and selects the activities they want their students to complete. There are over 300 activities to choose from, all aligned to national standards to help reach your class learning objectives.
Students Compete And Learn! When the students log in, they will see their virtual cash balance and a “Progress Bar” showing them how much of the curriculum they have completed. They can click on the next activity, and complete a task or two every time they log in.
While learning how to save and invest by managing a virtual portfolio of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, your students will be led through the site’s built-in “Assignments.” These Assignments contain our curriculum of articles, activities, videos, and quizzes that ensure mastery of the subject. Your Personal Finance classes will use our 60 embedded lessons and activities that align to the Personal Finance standards; your Economics classes will use our 25 Economics lessons and activities that align to Economics standards; and similarly for your Social Studies, Math and Business classes. All 300+ lessons and activities are aligned to national standards, but all have a personal finance theme. When students login to check on their stock portfolio they will be reminded of their progress through the Assignment.
6 Subjects, One Site!
Our curriculum is built on helping teachers engage their students in the best way possible – real-world examples bringing the excitement of finance into the classroom. Customize your class by adding in Personal Finance or Economics lessons, or supercharge your Business class with our Accounting, Management, Marketing, and Investing lessons. With this site, most of the articles and activities have a financial literacy theme to help them with their understanding of the markets, savings, and investing. Along the way, students will also learn how current events, the government, politics, and large businesses can impact the financial markets and their own portfolios.
Self-Grading Pop Quizzes Ensure Student Mastery
From the teacher perspective, our site is self-paced so that students can work at their own speed completing the articles and activities. The site is also self-grading, so that teachers will know which students have completed which articles and activities because every task on the site has a pop-quiz at the end. Students must show mastery of the subject in order to get credit for completing that task!
