COURSE DESCRIPTION: The Entrepreneurial Spark Studio is a two semester course that focuses on mentoring students and helping them identify their passions. and now to act on them. This mindset will help them engage in developing new skills, ideas, and even business ventures. During the year the students will work on passion driven projects using highly collaborative and self driven methods to allow them to develop stronger critical thinking, problem solving skills, and communication skills. The culminating project will consist of a pitch deck, portfolio, and a “TED Style” presentation documenting their journey during the course of the year.
EXPECTATIONS
  • Getting respect requires giving respect. If you don’t feel you are getting respect then reach out to that person.
  • Communication is key. This course has a high level of independence to it. Unless you reach out to me to ask for support or clarification, I assume that you understand the assignment guidelines and expectations.
  • Due dates exist for a reason. I am willing to be flexible on due dates if it means that you are willing to put extra work into improve your assignments or go above and beyond expectations. Failure to meet deadlines due to carelessness or lack of organization are not acceptable reasons for late work and missed deadlines.
  • Perfect is the enemy of done. This class is the anti-perfection. This doesn’t mean to turn in bad work, it means to risk doing something incredible even if you fall short.
  • Ask for help. No one can do it on their own. Asking for help means is a core of innovation. It promotes collaboration and allows us to learn along the way.
  • What other expectations can we create together?
