9781522976776: It's My Business: Inspiring Students' Ideas for a Better Community (Full Color)

Teach the next generation that it is possible to change the world with the inspiring curriculum guide, It's My Business: Inspiring Students’ Ideas for a Better Community.

Author Roxie Hentz, PhD, applies over twenty-five years of experience to create a fully developed curriculum resource aligned to academic standards with detailed lessons, interactive activities, and group projects that will equip educators and youth leaders with the tools they need to introduce the concept of social entrepreneurship.

Many students already engage in social entrepreneurial activities - whether it’s using their money to aid animals at the local shelter, buying food for a neighboring soup kitchen that serves the homeless, or something else close to their hearts. By more formally exposing them to this innovative field, students will learn how to take social issues they’re passionate about and turn them into real businesses that help their communities in meaningful ways. At the same time, they also strengthen critical thinking, build leadership skills, develop a sense of self-responsibility, improve confidence, and promote problem-solving techniques—all skills that can transfer to success both in school and beyond.

The lessons and activities ultimately build toward a project in which students get to develop and manage their own classroom social enterprise. This process of learning through real-life experiences challenges them to view business as a way of improving or changing their community—and even the world around them.
