In this economics webinar, use Jeopardy! games as part of any introductory course on investing and markets.
Explore the basics of iconic Wall St., and explain ways in which stockholders can reduce risk. Then, prepare formative and summative assessments on the concept of investing by using Kahoot and the class game of Jeopardy! These tools can be used for both online and in person learning, as well as be generated with students and by students. Additionally, you can change format, categories and answers to align them with teaching other subject matter. Keeping score and setting up teams will be up to the teacher depending on the level of competition, collaboration or engagement preferred.
