This course introduces students to the world of business. Students will develop an understanding of the functions of business, including accounting, marketing, information and communication technology, human resources, and production, and of the importance of ethics and social responsibility. This course builds a foundation for further studies in business and helps students develop the business knowledge and skills they will need in their everyday lives.
TEACHING STRATEGIES (include, but not limited to):
ASSESSMENT AND EVALUATION OF WORK:
Assessment and evaluation will be based on the provincial curriculum expectations and the achievement levels outlined in the curriculum policy document. Students will be given numerous and varied opportunities to demonstrate their achievement of the expectations across the four categories of knowledge and skills.
Culminating activities occur at or near the end of a course. They form part of the final 30% (15% of final grade) of a student’s mark. If a student is absent from a culminating activity, they must provide a doctor’s note. The culminating activity will not normally be re-scheduled.
For this course, the culminating activity will occur during the month of June. Students will create a game with questions, challenges and tasks related to each of the strands covered in the course. Students actually create the game using their entrepreneurial and innovation skills.
Interim: A report will be given to reflect how well the student is progressing with suggestions for improvement.
Term Work: 70% of the overall grade (from all term evaluations)
Final Evaluation(s): 30% of the overall grade (will include a combination of the culminating activity and final exam)
Teachers will take various considerations into account before making a decision about the grade to enter on the report card. Determining a report card grade will involve teacher’s professional judgment and interpretation of the evidence and should reflect the student’s most consistent level of achievement with special considerations given to the more recent evidence. Marks are not merely a calculation of averages, but an evaluation of the consistent achievement of the student.
