Teachers’ Workshop 2011
NYSE Euronext and the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy
are working together to help educators teach students
about the financial marketplace and its importance in
their lives and the global economy.
Our Commitment to Education
NYSE Euronext and the SEC are committed to educating the public about
equities, futures, options and a variety of financial products. Whether it’s to fund
a college education or save for retirement, the key to successful investing is to be
well informed so that one can make intelligent decisions.
Why are These Workshops Important?
Securities markets are fundamental to the capital-raising process in a free
economy. They enable businesses to raise capital by offering shares of stock or
by issuing bonds. Upon obtaining this capital, companies can finance and build
new plants, acquire equipment and services that produce goods and create jobs,
developing a better quality of life.
What Do the Teachers’ Workshops Offer?
The five-day Teachers’ Workshop is designed to:
ƒ Provide educators with an understanding of the capital-raising process and
the NYSE trading platforms.
ƒ Increase teachers’ ability to include the financial markets across curriculum
ƒ Provide support materials and skills for classroom instruction.
Two Graduate Programs will also be offered for educators who have previously
completed the full Teachers’ Workshop:
ƒ The SEC Graduate Program is designed to enhance understanding of the
securities markets.
ƒ The NYSE Euronext Graduate Program will increase teacher understanding
of complex market activities.
Speakers are drawn from NYSE Euronext and SEC staff and include lecture/
discussion sessions, hands-on activities and field trips.
The programs cover a variety of topics, including:
ƒ Market structure
ƒ Market regulation
ƒ Trading platforms and technology
ƒ Derivative products
ƒ Classroom resources
ƒ Careers in the securities industry
