Studies, Activities and Projects
This section will discuss what material the students are currently learning in the classroom. What concepts and theories we are learning and how they pertain to everyday and/or current events. It will also mention the activities and projects we are doing to reinforce their learning experience.
The section will be a note to parents, letting them know the following:
In this section I will outline a decision making scenario and encourage them to discuss with their child/family. I will end the scenario with questions that will help spark a conversation.
A request for a parent to share an experience or question that we can discuss in class. I will have an ongoing invitation for parents to come and talk about their career/business.
Business Competition Update
My plan is to divide the class into equal groups and have each group run their own simulated business. The business competition will run the entire school year with new variables added as we learn new material. The businesses will be of the same industry and will compete with each other over their target market share, sales revenue, profit and how well they stayed on track with their business objective.
