Grit9 is an entrepreneurship class and club at Elida High School in Ohio. Directed by Mr. Mark Suter, but many elements are completely ran by students. We run a business out of the classroom (grit9.com) where we provide web design, photo scanning, and VHS to DVD conversion. Students handle everything from developing and executing our marketing plans, budgeting, and professional development of our skills. We like to make it up as we go, then iterate through to smooth out rough edges.
These are stories from this classroom.
001- Choose Your Own Textbook
In Episode 1, students in the Tech and Entrepreneurship class were given a unique opportunity: Choose a textbook for yourself. Really, it’s more of a self-help book from Amazon than a textbook. Part of being entrepreneurial is taking care of yourself so that you are prepared to capitalize on opportunities outside of yourself. This episode contains the stories and choices they made. Enjoy!
