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. 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.
Get Started With 3 Easy Steps
Step One: Build Your Stock Game
Every class is different, so we make it easy to customize the stock game for your teaching goals. You can customize over 50 different settings, including:
- Let your students buy just stocks, or include other securities like mutual funds, bonds, currencies, and even options
- Choose the starting cash, start dates, end dates, and how much students need to invest
- Let your students borrow money to gain leverage, and customize how much interest they get charged
- Keep your game realistic by restricting penny stocks, or by making sure students can only trade stocks actually trading in the markets in the real world
- Put a ceiling on the number of trades, forcing students to carefully consider every move
- Enforce note-taking: Require students to write a short note with each trade about why they think it is a good idea, perfect for reference and building reports
Step Two: Customize Your Learning Units
This is where the magic happens. Choose which activities students need to complete alongside the stock game. We call this “Assignments.” The list of tasks you require each student to complete. You can make new assignments every week with their own start and due dates, and even queue up the whole semester in less than 10 minutes. Some of the types of activities include:
- Tutorial Videos – Start off class by requiring students to watch short tutorial videos acquainting them with their portfolio and research tools.
- Stand-alone lessons – Require students to read short articles and pass a pop quiz about topics you are covering in class. Lessons are supplemented with additional videos, infographics, and real-world examples.
- Interactive calculators – Have students use our calculators to build a plan to save $1 million, or build a household budget.
- Trading – Require students to make a certain number of trades per week, divided between stocks, bonds, or other securities you allow for your class.
Step Three: Students Compete And Learn!
Every time your students log to check their class assignments, they are also greeted by their portfolio, and their live class rankings. Class rankings keep students engaged with the stock game, while progressing through their assignments and lessons.
As the teacher, you also get complete access to all student progress, including different reports showing trading activity and assignment progress.
Self-Grading Quizzes Ensure Student Mastery
All lessons include a short quiz at the end to ensure student mastery. This means students cannot just jump through each article and activity – they need to demonstrate a real understanding of the subject matter to get credit.
