March 30th – April 3rd

Introduction to Business and Technology – Spring 2020!

Sunday, March 29th

Hello everyone. I hope that everyone is doing well and staying healthy! You will have two assignments this week. Assignment #1 is primarily research based so that you become familiar with some local businesses. Assignment #2 is in preparation for upcoming information I will be presenting to you. I am setting up a Zoom for us to use beginning the week of April 13th. I will keep you posted and send you an invitation to join by email. If you cannot join at the times of the meeting, I will record the meetings so that you can watch at your convenience. There is some lecture involved with these concepts and I want to be able to interact with you when talking about these forms of business ownership.

Assignment #1:

As we transition from entrepreneurship to business ownership, I would like for you to do some research this week on local businesses and their contributions to society and our economy. There are so many different types of businesses that operate locally – everything from construction to healthcare to manufacturing to transportation. Below is a link to assignment #1 for this week. Instructions are on the page, along with a sample at the bottom of the page. Use a word document, please put a three column header at the top and use my example for completing all 12 categories.

Local Businesses

Assignment #2: As we move in to Business Ownership, I would like for you to create a table just like the one in the link below. Of course, you may use color. Create the table in Microsoft Word. I will be sharing some PowerPoints with you that you will use to fill in the cells of the table. Over the next class week (April 13  -17), I will cover the following forms of business ownership: Sole proprietorships, partnerships (general and limited), corporations (S Corps and C Corps), Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) and Non – Profits. We will discuss start up costs, liability, decision making, pros and cons for each form of ownership. This is A LOT of information and I want you to be able to have a graphic organizer to keep it all organized. For this week, just get the organizer table finished and ready to use.

Ownership Table

Submit both assignments to me by Friday, April 3rd, 3:30 p.m. – Please send me ONE email with both assignments attached. As always, let me know if you have any questions. Take care of yourselves. I miss you……

Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.

This week, I would like everyone to work on a couple of assignments from gcflearnfree.org so that we can keep our Microsoft Word skills at a high level. Also, you will be doing some research on the SBA (Small Business Administration). Right now, the SBA is in the news because of the ailing small businesses in the United States. The coronavirus is having adverse effects on small businesses and many of them are having to close their doors for lack of customers. This internet activity will give you a good idea about the services that the SBA offers for entrepreneurs and small business owners.

Assignment #1: GO to gcflearnfree.org – Click on Technology – Click on Office Word – Go to Lesson #9 – Line and Paragraph Spacing – Watch the tutorial and go through the lesson. At the end of the lesson, click on the Challenge Practice Document and modify the letter to Ms. Ella Jackson. Follow the instructions in the challenge. Save the letter as you will submit to me as an attachment.

Assignment #2: GO to gcflearnfree.org – Click on Technology – Click on Office Word – Go to Lesson #15 – Columns – Watch the tutorial and go through the lesson. At the end of the lesson, click on the Challenge Practice Document and modify the Newsletter for Lime Grove Luxury Apartments. Follow the instructions in the challenge. Save the newsletter as you will submit to me as an attachment.

Assignment #3: Small Business Administration Handout – PLEASE READ THE DIRECTIONS. There is a section at the top of the instructions that you may miss if you do not read carefully. You may type the answers in a Word document and submit to me as an attachment.

SBA – Internet Activity

As always, email me with questions. Send me ONE EMAIL with all three assignments attached to the email. If you have any questions, let me know. All assignments due Friday, March 27th by 3:30 p.m. – Have a great week!
