Stock Market Savvy.
Keying In, v14 n1 Sep 2003
This issue of Keying In, the newsletter of the National Business Education Association, focuses upon teaching young adults how to develop both investment strategies and an understanding of the stock market. The first article, "Sound Investing Know-How: A Must for Today's Young Adults," describes how young adults can plan for their own financial security by saving 10% of their gross salary and investing it in order to face these three long-term financial challenges: buying a home, funding their children's education, and saving for their own retirement. The second article, "Teaching Strategies: A Deliberate Walk Down Wall Street," describes ways to teach young adults about the stock market, including some of the following: (1) introduce basic concepts; (2) play simulation games; (3) bring in current events and topics; (4) do not feel obligated to familiarize students with every type of investment; (6) use outside resources; (7) find training; and (8) explain the difference between saving and investing. Other articles include "Investing for Life: The Importance of Diversification and Financial Discipline" and "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" Contains a list of terms and concepts recommended by teachers of investment and personal finance classes that students need to know and a list of 16 Web site resources. (MO)
