I had heard about the Stock News Game before, but didn’t check it out or really “get” what it was until Nik Peachey explained it in his blog.

In the game, you’re given a very short piece of information about a company, and then have to predict if its stock goes down, stays the same, and goes up by the end of the day that news came out. It’s probably only accessible to high Intermediate or Advanced English Language Learners, but it would certainly be a useful way for students at those levels (or native English speakers) to get a little more of a sense of how the stock market works.

It would certainly be better than the convoluted and dry explanations I’ve seen in the high school economics textbooks!

I’ve placed the link under Economics on my website.
