Join us for this webinar on how to enhance grades 6-12 instruction across subjects by cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset in students. After briefly setting the stage with research-based reasons to teach entrepreneurship, participants practice “thinking like an entrepreneur.” Participants also explore ways to use entrepreneurship concepts, skills, and mindsets as real-world contexts for teaching CTE courses, math, English, science, social studies, economics, and personal finance while simultaneously increasing student engagement and achievement. Recommended age-appropriate, classroom-ready, grades 6-12 entrepreneurship resources included (e.g., videos, hands-on lessons, chapter books, articles, etc.).

Co-sponsored by the Minnesota Council for Economic Education.
