Someone once said, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." As a business education/entrepreneurship instructor, my students are learning how to fish everyday.
Teenagers are one of life's greatest mysteries.
But working with teenagers on a daily basis, is one of life's greatest joys. During this stage of my students' lives I understand their challenges of balancing what their friends think is "cool" and what their parents say is "success." And often times at this stage, the two aren't always the same. As an entrepreneurship/business education teacher in a title one school located in the heart of Atlanta, I am fortunate to provide my students with valuable skills and experiences that they can begin to apply as soon as they walk out of my classroom. I think this is my advantage in my lesson planning and building. I see their desires to be cool but I also see their desires for knowledge, for keys to success and can easily answer the age old question of, "How will this ever be useful in my life?"
I would love to introduce my students to the Robert Kiyosaki "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" philosophy on money/success so that we can begin to explore other people's path to success. I particularly would like to explore this author because his writings heavily rely on his thoughts and experiences as a young boy. Additionally, Kiyosaki has also produced a board game that supports topics that his books introduce. We will begin with reading and analyzing the books, studying various topics such as learning to identify opportunity, evaluating risk, and defining successful investments. Then we will use the board games to solidify concepts that we are learning in the book.
The donations that we receive for this project could literally be life changing for a number of my students.
As a teacher I want to challenge my students to be better thinkers and catalyst of change, even if the change first occurs with themselves. Allowing students to experience and understand entrepreneurship gives them the ability to not only change their futures but own them as well.Read More
