How stock markets work education center yahoo finance

How Stock Markets Work

If you’d like to buy a share of stock in any publicly traded company you’ll most likely need the services of a brokerage firm. Though it’s possible to buy and sell shares of stock on your own, there are some practical and legal problems with this approach. The securities industry is highly regulated, so you can’t just hang a shingle and start selling stocks to the general public, unless you’re properly registered and licensed.

When you want to buy groceries, you go to the grocery store. When you want to buy a sofa, you go the furniture store. And when you want to buy stocks, you need to do business with a brokerage firm.

A brokerage firm is a dealer of stocks and other securities that acts as your agent when you want to buy or sell stocks.

Most trading of stocks happens on a stock exchange. These are special markets where buyers and sellers are brought together to buy and sell stocks. The best known stock exchanges are the New York Stock Exchange and the American Stock Exchange.

Besides these two national exchanges, there are many smaller regional stock exchanges, such as the Pacific in Los Angeles, the Philadelphia, the Boston, the Cincinnati, and the Chicago. Some small companies are listed only on a regional exchange, while some NYSE and AMEX companies are listed on these smaller exchanges, as well, to help trades happen faster and cheaper for investors.

When most people think of a stock exchange, they picture a scene of frantic activity, with traders in funny-looking jackets simultaneously jostling for position, shouting commands, making strange hand signals, and writing up orders. Behind this frenzied spectacle, however, is a methodical and organized system of trading, in which the price of any stock is set purely by rule of supply and demand in an auction setting. Specialists help match buyers and sellers, but shares are always sold to the highest bidder.

From the perspective of an investor, buying and selling stocks seems pretty simple. If you use a full-service broker, just call her up on the phone and place an order for 100 shares of Coca-Cola. Within a few minutes, you’ll receive a confirmation that your order has been completed, and you’ll be the proud new owner of Coca-Cola’s stock.

Behind the scenes, however, there’s a lot of action that takes place between your order and the confirmation. Here’s what has to happen:

  1. You place the order with your broker to buy 100 shares of the Coca-Cola Company.
  2. The broker sends the order to the firm’s order department.
  3. The order department sends the order to the firm’s clerk who works on the floor of the exchange where shares of Coca-Cola are traded (the New York Stock Exchange).
  4. The clerk gives the order to the firm’s floor trader, who also works on the exchange floor.
  5. The floor trader goes to the specialist’s post for Coca-Cola and finds another floor trader who is willing to sell shares of Coca-Cola.
  6. The traders agree on a price.
  7. The order is executed.
  8. The floor trader reports the trade to the clerk and the order department.
  9. The order department confirms the order with the broker.
  10. The broker confirms the trade with you.

That’s how a traditional stock exchange works, but much of the action that takes place when you buy or sell a stock is being handled with the assistance of computers. Even if you bought a stock that trades on a stock exchange, your order may be executed with little or no intervention by humans. You can log on to a brokerage firm’s Website, enter an order, have the trade be executed, and receive a confirmation all within sixty seconds or less.

Harvard graduate school of education degree programs

Degree Programs

At HGSE, you can choose from an array of academic programs designed to enable you to learn and work at the nexus of practice, policy, and research, and to prepare you to become educators, researchers, and leaders who will impact real-world policy and practice.

Master of Education

The Ed.M. is designed to be a yearlong intensive program for students who wish to study a particular field in education, acquire a general theoretical background for understanding past and future field experiences, or develop skills for use in professional work in education. Our program offerings include:

Arts in Education students can design their own courses of study to explore multiple roles for the arts in education, from nurturing the creativity of individuals, to the creation of healthy schools, communities and civil society. Through immersion in theory, research, policy, and both the study and implementation of the discipline’s best practices, AIE students gain a complex understanding of how to use individual art forms as instruments that spur exemplary thinking.

Education Policy and Management students explore contemporary issues within the United States public education system, utilizing research skills and evidence, political analysis, and organizational knowledge. The EPM program aims to equip graduates to understand, participate in, and ultimately manage and lead complex initiatives involving policy and practice.

The Higher Education program prepares students to assume administrative roles in colleges, universities, higher education associations, and agencies that address higher education issues. Students explore how higher education organizations work, by analyzing their structures, their histories, their planning, and their policymaking processes.

Students in the Human Development and Psychology program explore the cognitive, emotional, communicative, and relational development of the individual, from birth through early adulthood, with a strong emphasis on applied research.

International Education Policy students use the tools of policy analysis, including research and the application of empirical data, to illustrate the results of policy decisions. Students gain the knowledge, perspective, and experience to shape and enact global reform and explore policy alternatives that can impact the future of learning, particularly in developing countries.

Language and Literacy students explore the ways in which language is learned, and gain a wide perspective on literacy development through the study of policy and practice, and through research that deepens knowledge of the discipline. The program is grounded in the belief that literacy benefits not only the individual, but society as a whole.

Licensure Opportunities:

  • Reading Specialist, all grades

Learning and Teaching students take courses that address topics such as curriculum development, the history and philosophy of education, teacher leadership, human development, public policy, and the impact of race, class, gender, and identity in education. The program is designed for students interested in the professional development and work of teachers, in students and adults as learners, and in the historical and social contexts of education.

Mind, Brain, and Education. the only program of its kind in the nation, offers students the opportunity to explore how thinking happens within the complex structure of the brain, and then to relate that to issues of pedagogy. Students work at the intersection of biology, cognitive science, and education in an emerging field that holds exciting possibilities for changing not only the way we teach, but also what we must consider in making educational or public policy.

Prevention Science and Practice prepares students to make a lasting impact on at-risk children from infancy to adolescence, using contemporary research, fundamental theories, and field work. Students explore a wide range of contemporary issues, including the cultural and educational context of risk and resiliency, and the effect of public policy decisions.

Licensure Opportunities:

  • School Guidance Counselor, grades PK-8, 5-12
  • School Social Worker/School Adjustment Counselor, all grades

The School Leadership program prepares students to become instructional leaders who will guide schools, groups of teachers, nonprofit agencies, or for-profit companies, in creating more effective learning environments. The program uses an innovative model centered on the principle of distributive leadership, which shifts the traditional leadership hierarchy toward a highly effective, team-based approach.

Licensure Opportunities:

  • School Principal*, grades PK-6, 5-8, 9-12

*All administrative licensure programs in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are under review by the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Until this has been completed, every program in Massachusetts, including the HGSE School Leadership’s Principal Licensure Strand, is considered to be in the process of ‘seeking approval’ from the state. While HGSE fully expects to attain this prior to the start of the 2013-14 academic year, we are unable to confirm our program’s approved status at this time.

Special Studies is the most flexible of HGSE’s Ed.M. programs. It enables students to design and structure their own specialized, interdisciplinary program of study to meet their academic and professional goals. Of eight courses, four are required to be taken at HGSE, and the other four may be completed at any of Harvard’s other graduate schools, as fieldwork experiences, as independent study courses, or as a combination of different academic offerings.

The Teacher Education program is an ideal choice for those who seek to prepare for the unique challenges and opportunities of teaching in urban school settings or to play leadership roles in creating systemic school changes that inspire new levels of success in adolescent learners.

Licensure Opportunities:

  • Teacher of (Subject), grades 5-8, 8-12

The Technology, Innovation, and Education program prepares students to contribute to the thoughtful design, implementation, and assessment of educational media and technology initiatives. The program prepares students to take on leadership roles in a wide range of fields, including design and production, policy development and analysis, technology integration and administration, research and evaluation, and teaching with new techniques.

Doctor of Education Leadership

The Ed.L.D. is a three-year, practice-based doctoral program designed to prepare graduates for senior leadership roles in school districts, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and the private sector. It offers an unprecedented approach to preparing leaders to transform the American education system in order to enable all students to succeed in a 21st-century world.

Doctor of Philosophy in Education

Offered jointly by HGSE and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), the Ph.D. in Education enrolls its first cohort in fall 2014. The program seeks to train students as academics, researchers, policy-makers, and leaders who will improve educational outcomes around the world.

The three concentrations are:

  • Culture, Institutions, and Society
  • Education Policy and Program Evaluation
  • Human Development, Learning and Teaching

Did i really go to harvard if i got my degree taking online classes theodore r johnson the atlantic

Did I Really Go to Harvard If I Got My Degree Taking Online Classes?


About two years ago, my classmates and I gathered in Harvard Yard to receive our graduate degrees alongside more than 7,000 of the university’s newest alumni. As the procession made its way to our designated seating area, an onlooker eyed our banner with a puzzled look and asked the guy in front of me, “What in the world is the Extension School?”

My classmate’s reply: “It’s the back door into Harvard.” Ouch.

I often felt the same way – that I’d snuck into one of the world’s premier institutions for higher learning. There is little chance that my slightly-above-average undergraduate GPA and an extra-curricular resume that only consisted of a part-time job at a music store would’ve secured a spot for me in one of Harvard’s ultra-competitive graduate schools. Yet, with no admission letter in hand and exactly zero hours spent preparing for graduate admissions tests, I became a Harvard student.

And I was not alone. The Extension School – Harvard’s degree-granting continuing education school – has a student population of more than 13,000. In fact, almost all of the Ivy League schools offer courses to “nontraditional students,” which the National Center for Education Statistics considers to be those who are older than typical college graduates, work full-time, or are financially independent and may have family dependents.

These continuing-education programs at Ivy League schools are not new creations; they’ve been around for over a century. They were established to engage the local community, further the education of university staff and their family members, and provide new skills to working adults. Their open enrollment and lower tuition rates have long made them appealing to such students. The reduced cost is in keeping with tradition. In the definitive book on HES, The Gates Unbarred. the former Dean of Harvard’s Division of Continuing Education Michael Shinagel describes the early days when courses were free to the indigent and only cost two bushels of wheat for those who could afford it.

Today, three Ivy schools–Columbia, Harvard, and University of Pennsylvania–offer undergraduate and graduate degrees that are obtained largely through evening, weekend, or online classes, making them more accessible to nontraditional students. Admission, however, is not open to anyone and an application process is required, including the familiar admission rites of essays, recommendation letters, and transcripts.

Related Story

Though I was officially a Harvard student by simply registering online for classes, I was not yet a candidate for the master’s of liberal arts. To gain admission as a degree candidate to HES, the primary requirement is to complete three courses–including an incredibly difficult “gatekeeper” course–and obtain at least a B grade in each of them. Upon completion and submission of the application, I was officially a graduate-level International Relations concentrator. At about $2,000 a course, the total cost of the degree requirements–36 credit hours and thesis–cost me less than $25,000 total. (The cost of a two-year master’s degree at Harvard’s Kennedy School, in contrast, would have been more than $90,000.)

At HES, of the 13,000 students, only about 2,000 are admitted degree candidates, and the school confers about 600 bachelor’s and master’s degree every year. Shinagel notes that of all the students that have taken courses at HES since its inception, less than one fifth of 1 percent have graduated with degrees. As it turns out, Harvard is hard.

After earning my undergraduate degree as a traditional student, I went off to the Navy and accepted a commission to become an officer. Ten years into my career, I found myself staring at another promotion board, but not having the graduate degree that many of my peers earned in military colleges. In this regard, HES was a godsend. Twice a week for the next three years, I’d wrap up a full day of work at the naval base and make the 100-mile roundtrip to Cambridge to learn from Harvard’s professors. And when this wasn’t possible, I took the courses online for credit.

The advent of broadband Internet has changed the reach and nature of continuing education. A recent study by the Sloan Consortium found that nearly a third of all higher-education students had taken at least one class online during the 2011 fall semester alone. It also found that 62.4 percent of the colleges in the study offered degrees that could be obtained entirely online, up from 32.5 percent ten years ago.

Perhaps the most surprising finding, however, was that though online enrollment is rapidly increasing, the study surveyed chief academic officers and they report that more and more of their faculty do not accept the value and legitimacy of online education. Certainly an argument can be made about the value of classroom learning over online delivery. But there is no debating the stigma attached to allowing students to earn credits from a university without ever stepping foot on campus. This is something that has not gone unnoticed by HES, which is why it mandates in-person attendance for a certain number of courses for admission and degree-seeking students.

Today, views on online continuing education programs have been commandeered by the rise of for-profit universities. These institutions’ business, academic, and student welfare practices are increasingly being questioned. A Senate report found that though these schools received $32 billion federal student aid, their tuitions are still relatively high and they spend less of those dollars on student instruction. Graduation rates are extremely low and student loan default exceptionally high .

These perceptions of online education contribute to a narrative that says these programs are an easy way to earn to a degree. This is particularly unnerving to Ivy League institutions and an anathema to their prestige. And, unfortunately, sometimes its students walk in with guilty consciences, especially when, like me, they probably would not have gained admission in the more traditional way.

But walking through Harvard Yard on the way to debate issues with some of the best minds in the world does much to strengthen one’s sense of belonging. The miles on my car, train tickets, late nights reading countless academic journals and writing papers, and the nine months working on my thesis with a world-renowned political science professor are proof that there was no shortcut to earning my graduate degree.

All who apply themselves can walk proudly out of the gates with a prestigious diploma in hand. This is exactly what Harvard allowed me to do. The school even provided a few stalks of wheat to carry during the procession as a reminder of HES’s founding mission and as confirmation that I did indeed belong.

Health & Physical Education Job Description

Health and physical education are taught at all grade levels from kindergarten through high school. Health and physical education teachers typically teach five to six classes a day. At the elementary level, physical education programs serve as an introduction to various types of physical activity. The emphasis tends to be on coordination, teamwork and an appreciation for sports. At the secondary level, programs become more specialized and in-depth. For example, a physical education teacher at this level might teach a class in aerobics or rock climbing. Most physical education teachers also teach a health curriculum. This may include topics such as:

  • Alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention
  • Nutrition education
  • Personal and community health and safety
  • Lifetime survival skills
  • Healthy lifestyle choices
  • First aid and CPR

Health and physical education teachers frequently are responsible for teaching sex education and human development classes. Many also work as coaches and athletic directors.

Health & Physical Education Requirements

To work as a health and/or physical education teacher in a public school, you will need at least a bachelor’s degree in education with an endorsement in health/physical education from an accredited teacher preparation program. In addition to teaching methodology classes, health and physical education majors take classes in exercise physiology, kinesiology, health and wellness and activity courses like tennis, basketball, and aerobics. All 50 states require health and physical education teachers to be licensed. Exact requirements vary but most states require a student teaching internship and a passing score on a comprehensive exam such as the Praxis. Teaching health and physical education is a physically demanding job so candidates should be fit and healthy.

Curriculum Information in Physical Education

Physical education teachers contribute to the growth and development of children of all ages in the cognitive, physical and social realms through the design of well-planned course planning and physical movement. Courses that may be included in your learning curriculum may include:

Introduction to Teaching Physical Education

As part of your specialty degree, you may explore the philosophical approach to physical fitness and the current trends that define health and wellness. Learning theories, practical approaches and inspirational aspects of fitness are defined by your own philosophy and experiences in this discipline. Principles and strategies for learning are explored and described through grand learning theories and educational research tools and studies.

As an educator, physical education teachers are also required to have scientific and theoretical knowledge, possess fitness-based skills and demonstrate physical competence. Activities and competencies are planned for your students via learning theories, purpose and are defined by preplanned objectives and goals.

Growth and Development and Motor Learning

This course instructs on the normal growth, development and motor function of children and adolescents. As related to coordinated movement and motor skills, activity planning is integrated with the age-related capabilities of agility, balance, coordination and strength. The three basic areas of the class are guided by learning theories to address individual sports, physical fitness and team sports. As an educator, you may explore the following theoretical concepts in this course:

  • Emphasis on the rules of the game
  • Assessment of skills and developmental motor coordination
  • Strategy of class activities
  • Evaluation and definition of fitness level
  • Strategies to maintain the safety of your students in sports-related activities

Designing Sports Programs for the Special Child

Young children and adolescents are entitled to the health, wellness and the satisfaction of physical accomplishments. This course provides instruction on the appropriate and effective strategies that may be applied to exceptional children who are physically or developmentally challenged.

As designed with the assistance of conceptual frameworks, you will learn to incorporate a structured program with class activities that assist the special learner with a sense of accomplishment and the benefits of exercise. Physical education teachers are expected to assess, evaluate and provide programs that engage all students and provide the health and awareness that accompanies a healthy and fit body.

Planning and Implementation of Physical Activities

The physical educator is responsible for the planning of developmentally appropriate learning experiences that are related to physical movement and motor skills. Curriculum is designed with learning theories and educational frameworks that deliver research-based activities for children and adolescents. Activities may include the following:

  • Yoga
  • Football Fundamentals
  • Basketball Theory and Learning Styles
  • Soccer
  • Dance
  • Cardio Health

Depending on your state of practice, state-approved conceptual frameworks may be assigned as the basis for teaching standards. Alignment of standards used by state accredited schools are discussed and explored. The planning and implementation phase of curriculum design are practiced and employed in various learning situations. Physical educators incorporate content and disciplinary concepts related to the development of health and physical fitness.

Practicum Experience for Physical Educators

As part of a learning experience and a class project, you may be expected to design, implement and evaluate a learning program related to physical education. Course theories are used to design class activities or organized sports to assess the appropriate exercises for children and adolescents. Motor skills, physical ability and muscle coordination are the focus for project design.

As a prospective teacher, you may apply your designed program to an actual classroom toward the completion of your specialty degree. Hands-on experience in a physical education environment is paramount to understanding the role of the physical educator. Your role as learner may include the carefully constructed project that is implemented, assessed and evaluated for successful student outcomes.

Health & Physical Education Career Outlook

A 2008 study on teacher supply and demand by the American Association for Employment in Education identified health and physical education as a specialty with some surplus of qualified candidates. This means teachers in this category may experience difficulty finding a job and may need to conduct wider job searches.

According to the American Federation of Teachers, a beginning teacher with a bachelor’s degree earned an average of $33,227 in the 2005-2006 school year. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that median annual wages of kindergarten, elementary, middle, and secondary school teachers ranged from $47,100 to $51,180 in 2008. Many health and physical education teachers boost their earnings by coaching sports.

Health & Physical Education Trends

Tough economic times are putting the squeeze on many schools’ physical education budgets. In a survey conducted by NASPE and Polar USA, 36 percent of the K-12 physical education teachers polled said their annual budget had declined. 46 percent of respondents said their budget had stayed the same. Only 11 percent reported budget increases. Overall, 61 percent of physical education teachers report an annual budget of less than $1,000 – a figure the association called “alarming.”

PE Teacher Education Online

Are you a physical education teacher looking to further your knowledge in the field at your own pace? Or are you a working professional who would like to make a career change into physical education but can’t fit a traditional degree program into your work schedule?

If you fall into either category, an online physical education degree program may be right for you.

Most online physical education programs are offered at the graduate level, so it’s best if you already hold an undergraduate degree. In addition to exploring various team sports and recreational activities, you can expect to take courses such as teaching methods in physical education, human growth and development, coaching theory, and assessment in physical education.

Course content is delivered over the Web and students typically can access classes at any time. Class discussions are held via regularly scheduled online chats.

Many online physical education degree programs indicate that they can be completed in two to two-and-a-half years. Some, such as the one offered by Canisius College, can be completed in as little as 15 months. Some components that indicate a high-quality online program include National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) accreditation and a student teaching practicum.

Online Physical Education Degrees to Consider

If you’re a professional educator interested in K-12 athletic administration, then you may want to consider Northcentral University’s online Master of Education in sports management. This program includes courses such as facilities management, policy development and administration of athletic programs. It is especially suited to individuals already working as coaches in schools.

Do you already hold initial teaching licensure in physical education and would like to further your studies in the field? Canisius College in Buffalo has an NCATE-accredited online Master of Science in physical education degree for currently licensed teachers. The entire curriculum can be completed online.

The University of South Florida offers an online Master of Arts in physical education. It is NCATE-accredited and open to new and veteran teachers as well as career changers. All content is offered online so there is no need to step foot on campus.
