Transcript of Entrepreneurship Prezi Revamped

Directions for Activities
1) As you read through the various documents and media, compile a list of character traits that you read or infer that entrepreneurs typically have. You are doing this activity to help you synthesize what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. Since you are doing this as you read, it should take you about an hour. See the first graphic organizer on the left to help you.
2) Now that you have finished learning all about this concept, it's important to do something that will help extend your knowledge. Perhaps you have an idea of your own! Think like an entrepreneur and explain your invention, as well as a plan for getting it out to the public. This should take between 20 and 30 minutes. Check out the second graphic organizer on the left to help you with this.
Are you wondering how you're going to be assessed for your learning? Check out the rubric to the right. Remember to review your work carefully before you submit your assignments by doing a self-evaluation!

Just for Teachers-- The Scoop on the Activities
Activity #1 is meant to be completed as the student reads through the content. It serves several purposes. Primarily, it helps focus the student as he/she reads through the content to look for specific characteristics of successful entrepreneurs. This will not only help focus the students' reading, but it will enhance their understanding of entrepreneurs. A graphic organizer is provided, and students will independently add words or phrases to a list of characteristics as they read through and listen to the different medias. This activity should take approximately 1 hour.

Activity #2 will commence once the students have completed reading and viewing all available media. This activity is designed to reach higher order thinking skills within the given content, and so that students have the opportunity to try out entrepreneurship firsthand. Again, a graphic organizer is provided to help guide students through this process, step by step. Students first explain a product or service that they would like to make available. Next, they explain their rationale, and how it will benefit others. Finally, they begin the planning process by identifying at least three initial steps to getting this product/service out to the public market. This activity should take approximately 30 minutes.

Both activities integrate skills of reading informational text, writing, social studies, and technology skills. Students who are EC, EL, or are performing below grade level will receive modifications with the least restrictive environment . They will be given the opportunity to work with a partner, if they so desire. Once completed, students will use a rubric to self-evaluate their work prior to submitting it. The teacher will then use the rubric to assess student understanding.
