                      Mrs. Crouch – karin.crouch@redmond.k12.or.us – Room #2

Course Description:
In this class, students will develop and improve their business skills and their leadership skills through
activities that involve:
      managing on-campus retail store operations
      acting as project managers with activities and events
      learning and implementing a variety of business practices
      involving themselves with community service projects
      completing one or more business project developed by the FBLA National program.

Individually or in small teams, students will choose a business project and complete it throughout the
semester in a self-directed manner. Students may then choose to enter their business project in Regional
and State FBLA competitive events. As managers of Redmond High School’s on-campus student store,
students will oversee all elements of a retail store.

All students will work to attain their “Future” level and/or “Business” level status of the FBLA Business
Achievement Awards. These levels are attained through accomplishment of various business-related tasks.
Students will also work (individually or with partners) to complete one or more on-going business-related
project. These projects focus on business activities developed by the FBLA National program. Students will
select one of the following projects: American Enterprise Project, Business Financial Plan, Business Plan,
Community Service Project, Desktop Application Programming, Internet Application Programming, Digital
Video Production, Digital Design & Promotions, E-Business, E-Portfolio, Local Chapter Annual Business
Report, Multimedia Presentation, Partnership With Business Project, Website Development, Business
Presentation, Emerging Business Issues, Partnership with Business, Chapter Scrapbook, Chapter Website,
Chapter Newsletter, or Virtual Business Challenge.

Each student will complete the following:
    Accomplish the various required tasks to earn a “Future” level or “Business” level of the Business
        Achievement Awards.
    Identify which business-related project to complete
    Develop a related calendar of goals and time-line deadlines for the accomplishment of the project.
    Throughout the grading period (6 weeks, 9 weeks, 12 weeks, and 15 weeks ), students will report on
        and/or demonstrate their project progress and complete an evaluation of personal progress toward
        completing the project.
    A student’s final goal will be to have completed a project in time for the Spring FBLA leadership
        conference.
    At the end of the semester, each student will give an oral presentation wherein they evaluate the project
        and the progress toward its completion. In the presentation students will describe the project, why they
        chose it, how it was completed, what they would do differently if they could do it again, their overall
        satisfaction from the project and what they learned from the project.
    Attend the Regional Fall Conference and/or the State Business Leadership Conference (if the student is
        an FBLA member).
    Assist in planning and implementing Redmond High School’s FBLA events (ie: fundraising,
        recruitment, community service projects, social events, etc.)
