The Week Ahead:
About this course:
Principles of Business, Marketing, and Finance is an introductory business course recommended to students in grades 9-11 who have an interest in business. While not a required prerequisite, this class offers students a broad overview of business topics and is helpful to those wishing to move on to upper level business courses at Huntsville High School.
In this course, students will gain knowledge and skills in economies and private enterprise systems, the impact of global business, the marketing of goods and services, advertising, and product pricing. Students analyze the sales process and financial management principles. This course allows students to reinforce, apply, and transfer academic knowledge and skills to a variety of interesting and relevant activities, problems, and settings in business, marketing, and finance.

This same course at the college level made me want to major in business and is hands-down my favorite class to teach! Among many other topics, we will dive into the field of ethics and their impact on business, conduct research over supply & demand, deliver an effective sales pitch, learn ways to establish and maintain excellent credit, and make overall good choices as consumers.
Be on the lookout for my classroom newsletter that will be emailed to parents at least every other week. In it you will find out what we've been working on this week, upcoming topics and due dates, and questions to ask your child that will spark conversations at the dinner table!
