The way in which the stock market works can be confusing for both students and teachers. This session will explore the fundamentals for creating and maintaining an investment portfolio that consists primarily of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. We will discuss how to differentiate the different types of securities investments and how each is uniquely traded. In addition, teaching resources and simulations will be presented in order to assist with bringing this topic to life in the middle and high school classroom.
We will be joined by Samantha Wooton, financial advisor with Journey Financial Group, a private wealth advisory practice of Ameriprise Financial Services, LLC. Sam will bring her experience as a five star wealth manager to demystify the world of securities trading to make it approachable to students.
