This project is designed to help students learn business software applications by tackling real-world business issues and engaging in personal reflection. Students will gain competency in Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, as well as other business tools and online resources. In addition, students will learn to better market themselves, manage their time, and analyze their own personal “balance sheet.” After each unit of study, students will complete a summative project that will become part of each student’s personal business portfolio. Students will master technical skills and gain greater appreciation for the value they bring to the classroom and the world.
