As a former Investment Banker and certified Business Education Teacher,  I love teaching Stock Marketing Investing!  My experience in the industry gives me a deep knowledge of stock analysis and the process of buying and selling stocks.   My students always enjoy playing the Stock Market Simulation and competing with me along with their classmates.   This stock market class is fun and engaging and knowing how to invest is an important life skill.  Investing responsibly in the stock market is the best way to grow savings and build cash reserves.   That's why it's critical for young adults to learn how invest responsibly now, BEFORE they risk real money.   

Based on my extensive experience teaching this subject, I know how to make it interesting and memorable.  I use video clips and engaging handouts to make the content  easy to understand and remember.  This class is interactive, not lecture based, so students will have the opportunity to discuss, share experiences, and ask questions.  I will help students discover how current events effect stock prices so they are more interested the world around them.
There is no formal homework assigned. 
No materials need to be purchased. Students will need internet access for playing the stock market simulation game (see the web sites above) and to research company information and stock market news.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.

All content used in this course is age appropriate and does not include any sensitive topics (political, sexual, violent, etc.). 
To research stocks, company and economic news, we use Yahoo Finance (finance.yahoo.com). It is a free, well known and respected site for news and financial information. The investment game we use is howthemarketworks.com, which is the industry standard for teachers. It is used throughout the US and Canada to provide a simulation platform where students can safely invest in the stock market with fake money. No risk but a great learning experience of investing in real companies.
