1 High School Student Project: AppleWorks or MS Office Investing in the Stock Market The Unit of Practice Invitation How can we give students an opportunity to apply the knowledge they ve gained from their basic study of investing? How can we encourage students to take an interest in the stock market to feel the thrill of trading, but not risk the loss of their hard-earned money? How can we help students see the results of their financial decisions and allow them to analyze and interpret the result of their investing by utilizing the power of technology? Tasks Students research a variety of stocks, collecting the required data using an organizational worksheet Data collected from the Internet and print media is then entered into the Stock Market Database. Students analyze their data using the features in the database and decide which stock to invest in. Students track their stock for a month to see if their strategies for choosing companies allowed them to purchase stocks that were successful financially. Tools m Computers with AppleWorks or Microsoft Office m Newspapers and magazines m Internet access m Printer m Files from the AW Student Projects folder or the MS Office Student Projects folder on the Fundamentals Workshop CD: m Stock Links m Stock Research Organizer m Stock Market Database m Stock Tracking Spreadsheet Interactions Students are divided into teams of two, four, or six and work cooperatively to research and purchase stocks. High School Student Project: AppleWorks or MS Office n Investing in the Stock Market 1

2 m If there is access to a computer lab, teams can be made up of two students. This allows for a larger volume of research and should result in a wider variety of stock purchases. m If the only Internet access is limited to a few classroom computers, the teacher may decide to form groups of four or six. Students can also be encouraged to spend time at home researching various stocks; they can then spend class time discussing material they have printed on potential purchases. m If Internet access is severely limited, it is possible to complete this project using print material (newspapers and magazines) to track stock values. In this situation, teachers need to make sure that students have been given ample opportunity to learn about investing as they will not have the opportunity to investigate the various tutorials available online. They will also have a limited ability to research individual stocks, so it might be helpful for the teacher to locate information on a limited number of stocks beforehand and have that information available for each student or student group. Individuals from the community, who are knowledgeable and or involved in the investment industry can be invited to speak with and advise students throughout this project. The teacher guides students through this project by providing the necessary resources, directing them towards knowledge-building activities, encouraging decision-making, and tracking student progress along the way.

They may utilize the Internet in any of these locations. Assessment The teacher will monitor or collect student research sheets to be certain that students have researched the number of sites required. The Stock Tracker spreadsheet will be graded based on requirements specified by the teacher. (Teacher may decide to create a rubric for this activity.) Students will be graded based on their ability to function within their group. 4 High School Student Project: AppleWorks or MS Office n Investing in the Stock Market

5 The project This lesson is an ideal means of integrating technology into your present economics curriculum. Students need to have a basic understanding of the stock market and investing in order to benefit from this activity. In addition to the usual text books, you may want to have your students work on a self-paced study of investing before beginning this unit. The following sites offer excellent tutorials on the stock market and investing in general: Invest Smart Standard & Poors Basics of Smart Investing How Stocks and the Stock Market Work Edustock Phase 1: Research Students work with a partner or within a small group to research companies and their stock history. The Internet sites listed for research on the Stock Links Sheet allow the user to look at charts and statistics, as well as the accomplishments of the company. Students use the Stock Research Organizer to gather their data. Phase 2: Data entry Students enter their data into the Stock Market Database. This database can be used by each individual group or for the whole class. If each group or set of partners has its own database, they save the file with their group name attached. If the database is used by the entire class, everyone will benefit from the research. Phase 3: Data analysis and decision making Students use the database to sort and analyze their data. They use the information within the database to help them decide which stocks to purchase. (The teacher decides whether or not students can purchase multiple stocks, as well as how much money they have to invest.) Phase 4: Tracking the stock prices Students track their stock for a month. They record their stock prices using the Stock Tracker file or a printed version of it. They can use the Internet or print media to update their stock values. At the end of the month the values will be graphed. If individuals or pairs are part of a larger group, they will compile all data, graph the results, and determine the value of the entire portfolio. One database is recommended for the one computer classroom. High School Student Project: AppleWorks or MS Office n Investing in the Stock Market 5

6 Preparation m Before beginning this activity, students should be introduced to the history of the stock market, how it works, mutual funds, rules, crashes, and market trends. Students should also learn about different types of stocks, buying and selling stocks, tracking stocks and stock tricks. They will need to understand the terms listed on the Stock Research organizer and Stock Market Database: m Stock Symbol m 52 Week High m 52 Week Low m Earnings P/Share m Cash m EPS Estimates (This year) m EPS Estimates (Next year) m Make copies of the following files: m Stock Research Organizer m Stock Tracker m Make sure copies of the following files are on the student workstations: m Stock Links m Stock Market Database m Stock Tracker (electronic version) Options and extension activities m Students can write a short paper documenting the reasoning behind their stock purchase decisions. m Groups can create a presentation on the companies they chose to purchase stock from. They can profile the company: who they are, what they produce, why they chose them, and how they did in the one-month period. m Stock market brokers can be invited to speak. Schools in rural settings might rely on the Internet to connect them with stock market professionals via or online chat. 6 High School Student Project: AppleWorks or MS Office n Investing in the Stock Market
