Pablo Casasbuenas, business studies teacher at Bexley Business Academy, introduces an entertaining stock exchange game to his Year 10s.
The game is an online stock exchange simulator with a twist; replacing companies with celebrities and profits with publicity enables students to understand the concept of share trading in an entertaining way.
While the traditional textbook approach to the stock market can be dry, complicated and alien to students' interests and experience, this series of lessons introduces the concepts in a student-friendly way through subject matter that engages and excites them.
Pablo's lesson plan allows an analysis of the key terms like capital gains and dividends, an introduction to the real stock market and ways to show his pupils how the skills learned could one day be turned into real financial gain.
