The Stock Market Game

SMG On-Site and Webinar Training

On-site SMG workshops

On-site teacher training workshops for first-time or novice Stock Market Game teachers include interactive curriculum lessons, stock market basics, handouts and hands-on computer lab sessions. Teachers learn how to access the SMG's Teacher Support Center of online curricula, lesson planning, tutorials and assessments; how to access and manipulate the student-based portfolio simulation. Teachers who attend and complete the entire workshop will receive CPDU's. Training sessions are offered each semester at our university-based Centers for Economic Education. Contact the Center near you for information or to register for an upcoming training session or for individual, small group or school or district-wide teacher training.
