My Students

I teach 14-18 year-old young adults who have had issues in the past with truancy. These students have multiple issues outside of the school milieu which contributes to their lack of motivation for coming to school. Even with all of their truancy issues, most of the students still strive lately to come and participate in the entrepreneurial class so that they can learn how to be financial independent after high school.

The course was created with these students in mind.

The relationship between having something tangible and making a connection with the community inside of the school is something that they could cherish as they work to create designs in their entrepreneurial class. The goal for our students will be to create shirts, cups, 3D printed trinkets and toys for the school store. They will be able to see the micro-economy of their decisions and feel the weight of supply and demand.

My Project

Students will use the Cricut website to design a shirt for themselves. After they have made sure the sizes are correct, the vinyl will be cut using the Cricut Maker and will be weeded out using the tools which are accompanied in the bundle pack. The students will then use an iron to press their designs on a shirt to see their final products.

Students will have a hands on example of taking a abstract idea and making it tangible.

Students will perform basic math calculations to see what the cost of the material they used amounts to and how that amount could be put towards the sell price of the final product. Students will take pictures of their designs throughout the process and upload the images to their online portfolio.
