Reflection: Real World Applications Show What You Know + Stocks Wrap Up - Section 1: Do Now


My students have been interested about internet companies like Facebook and Instagram and asking how they make money, since they are free to use.  With perfect timing, Twitter’s IPO occurred while we were wrapping up our “Tracking Your Investments” project.  I wanted students to read about it and understand how Twitter may be able to make money as a company, so I created a new do now.  Students were excited to talk about Twitter and its potential for turning a profit.  Even though this project is ending, I want students to continue to think and learn about investing.  I am planning on posting closing prices of the stocks students invested in throughout the school year.  I want to emphasize to students that investing in the stock market is a long term practice, rather than something that you do for a single week.
