The study of entrepreneurship should extend far beyond business classes given the 21st century skills that are at its core. This session will explore ways it can be incorporated into a variety of disciplines, specifically focusing on the use of social enterprise as a way to address social justice issues. Using such things as the Business Model Canvas, systems thinking and design thinking, this session will examine entrepreneurial processes that teachers can incorporate into their classrooms, processes that provide opportunities for students to engage in more authentic problem-finding and solving and that provide alternate ways to assess students’ understanding. This session will help teachers identify ways to build student capacity to think beyond problem assessment to sustainable solution creation.
