Market Your Thoughts
GRADE 7 & 8
It is the intent of Market Your Thoughts to encourage intermediate students to think creatively about enterprising ventures and to pursue entrepreneurial thinking and action. In partnership with the teacher, we work to identify, recognize and support the talent and initiative of our enterprising youth.
The students identify a business opportunity that they believe could work in the province of Alberta and creating a multi-media business plan describing their business concept.
How it works?
This program is designed as a two-hour to a half-day workshop facilitated by a local coordinator. The workshop focuses on idea generation and brainstorming techniques to help students come up with a unique business concept.
Following the workshop, teachers are encouraged to use the resource booklet to further engage their students in entrepreneurship discussion. Students are to complete their business plan during class time.
The resource booklet is connected to English/Media Literacy, Social Studies and the Arts.
