Use of John Johnson's Life Story in Conjunction With Other Black Entrepreneurs as Role Models for Potential Black Businessmen

Students read an autobiography of John Johnson and discuss how he rose from poverty to be a successful businessman. After reading excerpts of other autobiographies, they brainstorm a list of characteristics of those who were successful in business. To end the lesson, they discuss the importance of a role model and research their own role model to see how they took control of their lives.

I'm a science teacher assigned to teach an extra class in MATH. It's been great to get worksheets and ideas from other teachers who actually work in the field.
