In our Business Sharks class, students play the role of young entrepreneurs as they start with the germ of an idea for a business and product and take it through the entire entrepreneurial process. Our students develop prototypes, formulate a business plan and devise a marketing strategy. Meanwhile, students learn through contextual lessons on concepts such as wages, profits and branding while designing print ads, acting out "TV commercials," researching real estate locations and designing their storefronts. The class concludes with our young executives pitching their ideas to a "Shark Tank" panel of parents. These young entrepreneurs will really be taking care of business!

In Writing Wizards, we foster a love of writing by guiding our students to write and publish their own short novel! Using literature like Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia as inspiration, each pair of students designs a fantasy world that includes major and minor characters, fantastic settings, an extended backstory and a world of wonder. The authors use artwork and brainstorming to design plot twists and dynamic characters. Teachers guide the students, providing contextual mini-lessons on writing techniques that include the use of dialogue, detailed descriptions, sensory-rich word choice, and character development. At the end of the course, students take home their completed novel!
