Entrepreneurship is an interdisciplinary course designed to teach students how to think and act entrepreneurial. Students learn how to start-up and operate a business while in school, thus turning their learning into earning. The course will build on cross-curricular academic skills, by integrating inquiry-based learning and business tools that will enable students to analyze, create, develop and pilot small businesses in a safe campus environment. Those who manage and operate a small business will bring their products directly to the consumer via the local marketplace or present venture to potential investors for financing. Concepts and skills are reinforced by a strong emphasis on hands-on experiences. Applications to society, individuals, and the utilization of technology are included.
This course includes a broad series of lessons and activities that offer a variety of modalities for ultimate student engagement and content retention. Each unit contains a series of lessons that include introduction of content, virtual demonstration of that content, and repeated opportunity to practice that content, along with a quiz per lesson, exam per unit, and final exam at the end of the course.
