Flexible Fit Into Your School Year
This project based learning unit aligns with standards for ELA, Math, and Social Studies frameworks.
Typically implemented over a 6-8 week time period, freshINCedu includes 25 lessons plus a one week sales period. The program, designed to be used by all students, can be flexible to run for one section 45 or 60 min in length or multiple 30 min sections. It can be extended to accommodate other schedules or be run as a summer course. No business teaching experience is required; freshINCedu is designed to train and support teachers of any discipline. Students leave the class having built and launched a business and product via a real world marketplace. We provide the resources for the marketplace implementation via an online store or an event based pop-up store.
