2020-2021 Course Descriptions

Each of my online courses will be completed through the NC Education Cloud (IAM) through the CANVAS online classroom. Please see "Virtual Resources and Tools" tab for detailed log-in information.

I am teaching the following courses for the 2020-2021 school year:

  • Entrepreneurship I 
    • This course exposes students to the concept of entrepreneurship and allows students to create a business and write a "Lean Business Plan" for that business. Students will explore ethics, idea generation, marketing strategies, channels of distribution, business costs and expenses, pricing, and key business metrics.
    • Student proof of learning (POL) will be demonstrated through a performance-based measurement (PBM) that will be completed during the semester. Students will create a Lean Canvas Business Model (LCBM) to represent their business idea and present their business idea at the end of the course. 
    • This course will have VERY few quizzes and tests, if any, since students will be evaluated based on daily classwork, projects, and the Lean Canvas Business Model.

  • Entrepreneurship II Inherently Honors
    • This is the second level course for Entrepreneurship and students must pass Entrepreneurship I as a prerequisite. This course will be the "completer" for the "Business Management and Administration" pathway.

This course exposes students to business planning, risk, the costs of starting and running a business, marketing, market analysis, accounting, and financial controls.
