Target Audience: Middle and Secondary Educators

What do Sam Walton and Madam C. J. Walker have in common? They were both inspired by a problem that led them on the path to entrepreneurship. Like the stories of many other entrepreneurs, they bootstrapped with limited resources to build successful businesses. Economics Arkansas and Stephens, Inc. have partnered to develop 12 engaging classroom lessons for students based on these and other success stories. Each lesson is designed to serve as a bell ringer, mini lesson, or a class period lesson with extension activities.

Upon successful completion, participants will receive:
3 hours of professional development credit
$25 Walmart eGift card

This professional development offering available to educators under contract for the 2021-2022 school year.
