Teaching Entrepreneurship is Eva Marie Foxwell’s second book. Her first book, Managing the Classroom, focuses on bringing curriculum to life in the classroom with live role-play and scenarios. Giving students career-ready education in a student-centered classroom prepares them to serve as strong leaders as they learn the fundamentals of becoming an entrepreneur.
Teaching Entrepreneurship is a curriculum guide for new and experienced instructors who want a structured yet flexible outline for teaching in Business and Technology. Eva Marie Foxwell’s lessons are designed with a focus on giving teachers dynamic and interactive lessons, guided learning ideas, detailed assignments, formative and summative assessments, and a wealth of classroom material.
For students, this curriculum guide is designed to provide space to think, reflect, create, and collaborate toward formal projects that engage real-world business expectations.
The course begins with an exploration of what it means to be an entrepreneur: what an entrepreneur does, what he/she acts like, values, and achieves. The first several lessons will give students an overview of what it means to start, run, and own a business—the risks, rewards, needs, and expectations.
Lessons include interactive games and activities in class. As you work to establish good working relationships and group dynamics, it is important to get students working together early. You are encouraged to form a business as the premise of your class. You, or you and the students together, can choose what kind of “enterprise” you want to imagine for yourselves. Instead of their teacher, you will be their manager, CEO, or President. Students can rotate Assistant Manager or Vice President positions, to practice taking on extra responsibility, management risks, and authority. Lots of teamwork is always encouraged throughout the course, with clear roles and expectations. Be creative with this business structure.
Eva Foxwell’s twenty years of business excellence has helped her create this curriculum guide that named her a 2015 Delaware Superstar Education Winner and a 2015 Teen Ink Magazine Educator of the Year.
