Master Teacher of Personal Finance
Description: The Master Teacher in Personal Finance (MTPF) program is designed to provide middle and high school teachers with the personal finance content necessary to teach a high school personal finance course or to incorporate the topic into other courses, i.e. business, math, ICT, College and Career Readiness. In addition to content instruction, teachers will learn about a variety of high-quality resources they can use to teach the content in the classroom. The content and classroom resources are aligned with National Standards for Financial Literacy produced by the national Council for Economic Education. Teachers that complete this program are required to participate with students in MCEE student programs, i.e. the Finance Challenge. In addition, pre and post-testing of students using MCEE provided tests is required. This program is offered as a collaboration between the Mississippi Council on Economic Education, the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, Treasurer’s Education About Money (TEAM) and the Mississippi Department of Education. Special Education teachers’ participation is funded by the Mississippi Council on Developmental Disabilities.

Stock Market Game
Description: The Mississippi Stock Market Game (SMG) is a simulation of a real market, designed to involve students in the world of finance and investing as a means of helping them learn about how a market economy works. Student teams of 3 to 5 students invest a hypothetical $100,000 in stocks and compete for the best portfolio performance. There are two separate 13-week programs each year; one in the Fall and one in the Spring.
The program is available to all public and private students throughout the state of Mississippi in grades 4 through 12. The program is adaptable for many different classes, including social studies, mathematics, economics, business, technology, gifted, MOD, Special Education, and club activities. Students learn to develop team strategies, make decisions, and become informed about investment and economic terms. They also learn to see the connection between world events and their investments.
