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?
