Virtual Community of Practice
Teachers and administrators will receive a free, password-protected subscription to the interactive section of EnterprisePrep.net to be developed.
It will include discussion areas, curriculum supplements, readings with guides,
and links to educational, microenterprise, and business development resources.
EnterprisePrep.net will sustain virtual communities of enterprising practice.
Educators will collaborate with each other and facilitators, sharing ideas, solving problems, and realizing educational and business opportunities.
Data can be collected to monitor curriculum effectiveness: measurable inputs, e.g., pre-ownership performance, dollars invested in Corporate Stock, and outcomes:
attendance and grades
standardized literacy, math, and college admission test scores
promotion, suspension, dropout, and graduation rates
rent, taxes, profits, dividends, "double-barreled" return on investment
