The good News is that we are on track to finish all the required elements for class and can do so with a few weeks of online learning. Bad news, I can’t see your faces every day and for me this is what I look forward to the most. So, we adjust…. We solve problems. We find solutions. We use what we have learned this semester and think about things differently to overcome these new obstacles. This might be the best real world activity to get us to use the ideas and concepts learned in class to support the most important asset we have, Knowledge.
Questions Regarding SUPA credit? Please know that I am working with our District Administration as well as Syracuse University and will update you on any information that becomes available. This could take some time, so please be patient.
At this point I would like to try and set up a class using Microsoft 365 (Teams). I’m not sure how many of you are failure with this program…. I’m assuming some of you may be more of an expert then I am. Either way, we will figure it out together.
Please log into your Microsoft 365 account and click on Teams. You should see a Team created named “Entrepreneurship”. After clicking on the Team link you will find links which will connect you to uploaded files. You may have to scroll down when looking for the most recent post. I will update each week as we progress through the material. As of today, I’m thinking we should progress at a slower rate as to allow students the ability to connect with us and get used to a newer style of learning. As we get comfortable with Teams, you may post messages or questions that I can reply to. You can always direct questions to my email as well if you feel more comfortable.
If you would like, please text your classmates to let them know we are up and running, direct them to my website to get direction on how to connect to class.
If you are having issues with the program and need some additional resources to assist you please check out the following links.

Entrepreneurship (EEE 370): This class is being offered with SUPA (Syracuse University Project Advance) credit.
This business course is designed for those interested in learning how innovative thinking can lead to excellent opportunities in business. The topics include recognizing opportunities, performing a feasible analysis, types of business ownership, creating new venture teams, sources of financing, developing marketing strategies and creating a business concept model.
About SUPA - This course is designed specifically for high school seniors and is identical in all important aspects to the course offered to matriculated SU students - they use the same syllabi (where appropriate), materials, textbooks, assignments, and assessments. SU courses offered through SUPA intellectually challenge students, requiring them to deeply explore and thoroughly interact with college-level subject matter. Dual enrollment not only better prepares students to transition from high school to college, it gives them course credit that most SUPA graduates receive recognition for at destination colleges.
