Students in Mrs. Ewell's Entrepreneurship classes use idea generation techniques to create "problem-solutions" for themselves, and their community. They gain an understanding of the marketing and management principles necessary to start and operate their own business. In this exciting course, students also develop an awareness of their economic role as an entrepreneur through project-based learning.
