Project-Based Entrepreneurship

Description: The Project-Based Entrepreneurship (PBE) program is a self-paced, 7-hour professional development training created by the Mississippi Council on Economic Education and designed to equip educators to teach the basics of opportunity recognition and business development, to implement experiential entrepreneurship in his/her classroom, and to be leaders of entrepreneurship education in his/her district. The online training is designed specifically to help teachers (with a pedagogical focus on Special Education, Career and Technical Education, and Alternative Education) roll out a school-based enterprise or to generate similar work-based learning experiences in his/her classroom. The goal is to help students discover occupational interests, practice workforce skills, and transition to independence. The PBE training fills an existing gap by offering an abridged alternative to the intensive 75-hour Master Teacher of Entrepreneurship (MTEnt) program for teachers who do not require the “915” Entrepreneurship Endorsement through the Mississippi Department of Education.

This is a 7 hour ONLINE ON-DEMAND teacher training with the following learning outcomes:

  • Understand the nature of Entrepreneurship along with effective tactics, strategies, and techniques associated with teaching entrepreneurship in an alternative classroom environment (e.g., Special Education, Career and Technical Education, Alternative Education)
  • Identify data resources, websites, and conceptual literature useful for teaching entrepreneurship
  • Employ a learning-by-doing approach to the teaching of entrepreneurship
  • Develop critical thinking, problem solving, and analytic skills
  • Identify and leverage community support for teaching entrepreneurship
  • Apply understanding of inventory and financial management

For: 6-12 grade teachers (w/ pedagogical focus on Special Education, Career and Technical Education, and Alternative Education Teachers)

Stock Market Game

Description: The Mississippi Stock Market Game (SMG) is a simulation of a real market, designed to involve students in the world of finance and investing as a means of helping them learn about how a market economy works. Student teams of 3 to 5 students invest a hypothetical $100,000 in stocks and compete for the best portfolio performance. There are two separate 13-week programs each year; one in the Fall and one in the Spring.

The program is available to all public and private students throughout the state of Mississippi in grades 4 through 12. The program is adaptable for many different classes, including social studies, mathematics, economics, business, technology, gifted, MOD, Special Education, and club activities. Students learn to develop team strategies, make decisions, and become informed about investment and economic terms. They also learn to see the connection between world events and their investments.

In this ONLINE ON-DEMAND teacher training, learn how to implement the SMG in your classroom! (Takes about 5 hours to complete.)
