1.)Let students draw numbers. I do this because I require each student to research a different country so that we may learn the business practices in many different
countries. Sometimes many students want to do the same country. Drawing numbers promotes fairness.
2.)Call the students up by number and let them sign up for a country they wish to research. See page 1 of "International Business Cultures" attachment.
3.)Explain to the students they will be researching the country they chose. Read over page 2-3 of the "International Business Cultures" attachment.
Have the students begin by going to the Executive Planet website: Students type the name of their country- then Executive Planet.com. For example: China-Executive Planet.com. The website contains an interactive guide they should listen to first. Then,using the worksheet as a guide, they should select facts from the information they would like to share with the class.
)This website examines appropriate business practices in different countries using the following categories:
Let's Make a Deal
First Name or Title?
4.)Check the students worksheet for appropriate content.
5.)Review steps to creating a PowerPoint Presentation. Hand out rubric to show what they will be graded on. Allow students to begin creating their presentations. Walk around and assist students who need help.
6.)Have students present their presentations to the class. Invite principals, counselors, and parents. After all, this is Marketing!
7.)Have students critique their own presentation in an e-mail to you.
If you do not feel comfortable with this, have them journal, blog or wiki. Ask them to include their strengths, weaknesses, and what they will remember from this project.
8.)Hand out the completed rubric. Be sure to explain why points were deducted and go over their performance with them.
