MainXchange in the Classroom: The New Internet Stock Market Game. Teacher's Guide and Student Activities.
This teaching guide/student activities booklet, for grades 6-9 and 7-11, outlines an Internet-based stock exchange simulation that allows students to learn about the stock market in a fun format. The simulation (the "MainXchange") described in the booklet offers students the opportunity to engage in "real-life" investing, while exploring and learning about the industries, companies, and brands that interest them the most. It allows students to enjoy an exciting, interactive, and multifaceted program as they learn essential business, academic, and life skills. The educational goal of the MainXchange is for students to learn how to make informed business and investment decisions. The information students need to make such decisions is provided for them on-line; students can access many sources of information, including company capsule and financial reports, news releases, real world news (through a link with CNN Interactive), briefings, and links to companies' own Web sites. Sections in the booklet are: "What Is the MainXchange?"; "How the Teacher's Guide Is Organized"; "Time Frame"; "Skills Covered"; "Correlation of MainXchange Activities to National Education Objectives"; "Implementing the MainXchange in Your Classroom"; "Correlation of Activities to Academic Disciplines"; and "Answer Keys."
