North High School SMG project 2002: Alan Fanning's honors economics students have been working with the sixth graders in 4 classrooms to teach them the basics of stock market investing. During the fall semester, the high school students traveled to Skinner Magnet Center to work on economics lessons in the classrooms. In the spring semester, teams of 6th graders participated in the Stock Market Game sponsored by the Nebraska Council on Economic Education. Each team had student mentors from the North High class. A grant from SIA Foundation paid for their entry fees. The culminating event was a pizza party for all the mentor teachers and students from Skinner hosted at North. It was great experience for 6th graders and their high school mentors from Alan's class shown in this photo. Alan has sponsored this classroom project for the last three years at North High with coordination from Gay Thompson at Skinner Magnet Center.
