Give your students the "So You Think You Understand Stocks" test.

They will quickly see they have a lot to learn. We found many teachers managed to answer only about half the questions correctly.

Stock Market Basics really is about the basics. This is not a program about puts and calls, options, short selling, and P/E ratios. Instead, the program explains:
• What is a stock?
• What's the difference between a stock and a bond?
• Why do companies issue stocks?
• Why do some companies pay part of their profits to shareholders as dividends and others hang on to the money?
• What is a portfolio?
• How to buy stocks-broker, do-it-yourself, mutual fund.
• Do shareholders really "own" the company?
• What is a ticker tape, how did it start, and how can you read it?
• When you buy a stock, where does the money go?
• What is stock split?
• Is the stock market a game to be "played?"
• What are risk and volatility?
• What is the "efficient market theory" that won a Nobel Prize?
• Is it true that a blindfolded monkey throwing darts could make money in stocks?
