NEW!

In an effort to encourage students to turn in all work, MHS has instituted a policy to accept late work. All assignments are posted in Canvas in my class with a initial posting date, due date, and closing date. Work is not accepted after the closing date. After consulting with my colleagues across the district, 10 points will be deducted for each day an assignment is late in any of my classes.


We have also posted summative grades in all classes so please encourage your student to make arrangements to retest if their score is below an 80. MISD Policy is available at this link: http://www.schools.mckinneyisd.net/mhs/student-life/misd-updates-re-test-policy/


I request students to notify me of their intention to retake within the two day time frame using a Canvas conversation. Retake permission forms are available in my classroom (blue sheets) or there is a copy of the generic version at the above link. They can use the form to schedule their tutorial (if necessary).


If you are not observing a Canvas class, contact Mrs. Spain kspain@mckinneyisd.net. If you do not have HAC information, contact your student's House Principal's office.


Feel free to contact me if you have questions, suggestions, or want to come visit our class.

Sports & Entertainment Marketing

Our focus the past couple of weeks has been on marketing foundations. We've learned terminology and the 7 functions of marketing. We've also played a rousing review of KahootIt! that will be used as a quiz grade. This week we'll be fine tuning our skills with a couple of short projects demonstrating our knowledge in preparation for a test over marketing foundations early next week. I'll post the exact date in Canvas.

Principles of Business, Marketing, & Finance

We've researched the three major economic systems and will be viewing examples of each through published student research. We're also looking at how a global economy affects business, both domestically and internationally.

After students completed their research assignment, they should complete their self/peer evaluation located in the assignment post. We had some technical issues with submitting the urls for the assignment so there is also a Google form for students to use in submitting the project rather than Canvas. It's located in the assignment post as well. I should be posting the group economic research assignment later in the week or early next week so please encourage your student to make arrangements to retest if their score is below an 80.

Entrepreneurship

We are starting to formulate our business plan by researching viable teen business ideas and analyzing our skills and abilities. We concluded our study of basic economic concepts and will be examining basic forms of business, i.e. sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, and franchising. Then students will choose their legal form of business for their teen business project.


We have a test scheduled for Thursday over student's potential as an entrepreneur, characteristics/skills needed for success as an entrepreneur, advantages/disadvantages of entrepreneurship and basic economic concepts.
