National Entrepreneurship Week is coming!
How are you celebrating National Entrepreneurship Week (NEW) Feb. 21-28? Send a description of whatever you have planned to
and we will post it on the NEW website. Just to prime the creative pumps, here is a suggestion from the Generation E curricula:
The Generation E Institute is promoting the “Entrepreneurs Interview” during National Entrepreneurship week. Middle school and high school age students will have an opportunity to meet local entrepreneurs and business owners in their classroom or organizational setting. Entrepreneurs attend and meet with a small group of students to answer predetermined questions in informal conversational setting. Upon completion, the students introduce their entrepreneur to the rest of the groups, sharing information that they learned during their interview. Rather than a panel setting, this process enables students to learn more about all of the entrepreneurs.
This lesson incorporates the social skills, communication, writing, and public speaking. In reflection, students discuss how every opportunity to meet with entrepreneurs and business owners has the potential to be a future job opportunity, a mentoring relationship, and the opportunity to create good will in the community.
This lesson is taken from the Teaching Success: New Directions in Entrepreneurial Education. For more information about Generation E curricula, please see www.genei.org or contact us at (269) 441-1238.
