Business 8: Personal Entrepreneur PowerPoint

  1. Take the personality test at 16personalities.com and review the results.
  2. Go to the following link and find the entrepreneur (or celebrity) who matches your personality: bit.ly/2FSlRFU.
  3. Go to office.com and log in. The username is 1234567@learn.vsb.bc.ca, replacing with your own student number and the password is the same one you use to log in with school PCs.
  4. Include the following slides for the rough copy:
    • Title Page: entrepreneur’s name, personality code, your name, your block
    • Two Slides: Who is your entrepreneur (i.e. basic stats)? What is he/she famous for? What business and/or company is he/she involved with? Do a bit of research using other online sources.
    • One/two slides: What are your entrepreneurs’s strengths?
    • One Slide: How might you become a successful entrepreneur, given your personality, skills, interests, networking and other strengths?
  5. Complete the rough copy, focusing mainly on content, by next class. You will have 5-7 slides in total. You will also have another class to focus on layout (i.e. how it looks) before the assignment is due.
  6. Next Class: Modify your PowerPoint to meet the Tips for Effective Presentations (bit.ly/2FSnAuJ).

Business 8: Best of Dragons Den

 

Happy New School Year 2017-18!!!

I would like to take this time to welcome you back to a new school year and to welcome you to our course website.

This year, I am extremely excited to teach Business 8, Programming 10-12, and Planning 10 and to learn the names of all the new faces at Kitsilano Secondary! 😮 This is my first year at this school but I have over 10 years of classroom teaching experience from John Oliver and Windermere Secondary School, where I have taught business education, computer science, digital media and mathematics. I look forward to get to know all of you better.

In addition, if you are interested in starting a school club or team, come see me. I am a strong believer of building strong student leadership through community involvements and initiatives. In the mean time, please make sure to bookmark and check this website regularly because its contents get updated regularly. 🙂

It should cater to other high-school students (or specific groups of high school students).  Continue reading
