These are wild days for the stock market. If you have a student interested in learning first hand about the ins and outs (and ups and downs) of stock market investing, I have set up a free simulation game on MarketWatch. Participants get "$100,000" to invest as they see fit for the next six weeks. Although I will not be doing any teaching, as I do with my "Stock Market Challenge" class, there are free educational resources available on the MarketWatch site. The game will run through June 5, and students can begin immediately. www.marketwatch.com/game/learning-outside-the-box Because my game is set up to be private, please drop me a note for the password. I believe participants will also need a (free) MarketWatch account; MarketWatch is a subsidiary of Dow Jones.
