In this curriculum guide, I outlined responsibilities of each job position that I employ in my classroom. I wrote each position in a similar style to a job description that one might find posted on a company website so that each feels like a real business position. Some positions are more intensive than others, so in certain descriptions I have added examples of what a student in that position might say and do as part of their job. It is important for you to review the responsibilities of these positions with the students. I use the classroom job positions model and it has been working effectively for years to parallel to the real-world roles. See the below Table of Contents for specifics on business jobs within the classroom and review the entire guide with lessons.

Watching students take initiative, demonstrate loyalty, and contribute to a bigger cause can be very rewarding for all.I believe that we can better prepare students for the technology demands and the fast-paced professional environment that they will experience in the workplace. But what does “career-ready” really mean? After working in business and management for over 20 years, I’ve come to define a career-ready individual as a person who can make decisions, problem-solve, engage in critical thinking, analyze situations to overcome problems, and set goals. Grounded in these basic skills, I have developed a business curriculum that can be adapted to any classroom and any age of student. This manual differs from other classroom management guides in one prominent way: I manage my classroom by directly tying it to the curriculum to create a culturally proficient environment and restore behavior practices. My students walk into my classroom, which transforms itself from a standard computer lab into a bustling and productive business environment. Most 7th through 12th grade schools have incorporated business-based curriculums; however, many instructors lack the business experience necessary to create realistic context for their lesson plans. This leaves students unprepared to establish a strong foundation for hands-on experience in the workforce. I believe that we can better prepare students for the technology demands and the fast-paced professional environment that they will experience in the workplace.
