The Career PowerPoint project is due on Wednesday, November 20, 2019. Students’ worked on this in class last week, and I have extended the turn in date to Wednesday. On Wednesday students will start presenting their project to the class. I have seen what the students have done so far, and they are doing a great job. I am looking forward to hearing their presentation.
7th/8th Grade Careers
The Entrepreneur Business Plan Power Point is due on Wednesday, November 20, 2019. Students’ have been working in small groups together developing a business and writing a business plan. Each group has divided the slide equally among each other, and the groups will start presenting in class on Wednesday. The groups have been working hard together, and I am excited to see how the finished product comes together.
Each Student from both sections will be submitting their part of the project through Schoology and will be graded on an individual basis. Next week we will have limited time to work on this in class, so in order to finish the projects students will have to finish their part as homework.
If your student has any questions or concerns, please have them email me and I will reply as soon as I can.
