Overview

Give students an experience they won't soon forget-one that could launch them into careers as entrepreneurs. This easy-to-use simulation includes instructions for the teacher and reproducibles to help students organize their companies. While students enthusiastically delve into the world of free enterprise, they will be building decision-making, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills. This unit was developed to give upper intermediate and junior high students an introduction to owning and running a business. During the course of the unit, students will divide into groups (businesses) that will make a product and sell it to other students on campus. As they work together in their groups, they will be building skills in cooperation, compromise, decision making, and problem solving.

Meet the Author

Cindy Slovacek received a bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a specialization in Physical Education from Southwest Texas State University. She has been teaching for 27 years. Slovacek teaches sixth-grade social studies, seventh-grade Texas History, eighth-grade American History, and Physical Education in grades K–8. She has written the teaching unit Open for Business and the history game Trek Across America. Her philosophy is that teaching should be student oriented as much as possible. She believes that if a student is having fun and is involved in the activity, he or she will enjoy learning as well as retain the information better. She also believes that a teacher’s major goal is to develop responsible and good citizens for the future. Students need to take responsibility for their learning, and this is encouraged if they are involved in activities that are fun as well as educational.
