    Course Description:  This class is an exciting class that will introduce the concepts of starting, owning and running a successful business.  This class is an 8th grade exploratory class that meets daily for 40 minutes, for 18 weeks.  During this simulated business experience, some of the topics we will explore are: types of business owners, characteristics of entrepreneurs, marketing strategies, finances, employee responsibilities, manufacturing and evaluating the business.  Throughout this course, you will learn to use Corel Draw®to design Shelburne logos that will be put on various types of clothing and accessories. We will work closely with a local vendor to produce, market, sell and distribute the merchandise with the logos our class creates. This class will also be responsible for managing the school store. 
     
    "Ever thought of starting your own business? As a member of a team, students will go through the business planning process to create and implement a business idea. Students will learn about how real businesses operate, including how businesses make money. Emphasis is placed on the introduction and application of business terminology, basic entrepreneurship concepts, and fundamental business principles. Basic academic skills (mathematics, science, English, and history/social science) are integrated into this course. (This course uses Virginia's CTE "Make It Your Business - 18 weeks" standards as the basis for the curriculum.)"
