    • Lesson Procedure
      • Divide students into groups of three. Based on typical accounting enrollment numbers, I will probably have 15 groups of three.
      • Assign each group an “accounting mentor,” a Dodgeville High School alumni currently working in an accounting-related field.
      • Assign each group the financial analysis of a corporation traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Occasionally I will look up the list of the WORST performing corporations and have the students analyze those companies.
    • Lesson Procedure
        • Using Google Docs spreadsheet program:
          • One student is assigned the horizontal analysis of their corporation’s financial statements
          • One student is assigned the vertical analysis of their corporation’s financial statements
          • One student is assigned the calculation of their corporation’s financial ratios
        • Spreadsheets will be shared with accounting mentors for critiquing.
