We are launching a new project called My Legacy, My Destiny, that technically started last week as we started learning about investing in the Stock Market. I hope you have a much better understanding of how the Market exchange works through our HTMCV Stock Exchange Simulation. Here is a little video about that…It was a Blast! HTMCV Stock Exchange
But, the stock exchange is really learning about investing and the first and most important stock is to invest in yourself. Because investments grow over time if and only if you put the work and effort to be better…This project will push you to think about where you are going and what you want to do and the necessary sacrifices you will need to make to make your future value of your investment dream come true.
In our last third part of the year, we will push you to work hard, handle multiple responsibilities, be in the moment and focused, and follow through on the little details that are so important. These are all the skills you will need in high school; that is, if you want to THRIVE as opposed to just SURVIVE. So, here is where we are:
#1. The Judo Math Scrolls are Back!- this time though, work through it on your own and no need to do the whole thing BUT and it is a big BUT….use it to learn, train and practice. You will need to know how to do the work for the Yellow Belt Advancement this Friday! Practice makes Perfect! Extra Credit if you decide to do the whole thing!!
#2. Stock Market Project- You should by now have gone and registered for the Stock Market Contest. It is under the ABOUT tab on Projects page see..stock project Show Me the Money. You have to define all the Stock Terms…it’s the worksheet I gave you on Monday. They are due on FRIDAY…you’ll want to use them for the quiz on Friday!
#3. Do some Career Research on the career quest site called: cacareerzone.org This is a great way to learn about your skills strengths, job types and determining the amount of money you will need to meet a desired lifestyle. Play with it this week!!
This is a sign of what’s to come the rest of the year…we’ll go over some stuff in class and then set you to a series of tasks to complete.
Now, go forth and run the race, keep the pace, and keep your eye on the finish line!
