Teacher Review For Wall Street Survivor

Good information about the stock market, but is very wordy--hard to keep students interested.

How I Use It
I used the free course "Getting Started in the Stock Market" to reinforce what I had taught my students about the stock market. the lessons are good, but are very wordy. Students have to do a lot of reading and little other interaction and they did not like that. They do get badges for completing modules and students like that. I was going to use the stock market simulation on the website, but ran out of time.
My Take
Good website with great information about the stock market, but was hard to keep students interested because there was so much reading and not much interaction. If students really want to learn about the stock market on their this is a great site for that.
