Entrepreneurs in History

Students examine the contributions of entrepreneurs from United States history. They read a biography of an American entrepreneur, and in small groups design and present a project related to their selected entrepreneur. As a culminating activity, students write an essay describing the characteristics of entrepreneurs from the past that would still be successful in the 21st century.

Lesson Planet has helped me find things that work but more importantly things that don't work for me as a teacher. Every teacher is unique in their style and Lesson Planet has helped me define my style.
