Teachers and students in Colorado can learn about the stock market with a free online webinar.
The 10-week “Stock Market Exchange” program from Economic Literacy Colorado launches Monday and teaches third- through 12th grade students about saving, investing, personal finance and basic economics.
Teachers do not need prior knowledge of how the stock market works to have their classes participate.
Teacher training sessions leading up to the course are available 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday or Sept. 17. Teachers will receive an outline of the program, a demonstration of the website’s operational features and an overview of available curriculum resources and lesson plans.
During the 10-week duration, student teams will use intuitive technology to invest a virtual $100,000 in stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
