Support for Teachers and Schools
We Get By With a Little Help From Our Friends

COVID-19 has certainly challenged the stereotype that Americans are independent, go-it-alone people. This is true of teachers as well. We know that even when school happens in the building, educators may lack opportunities to collaborate with others who teach the same subjects and courses.

We can help. Across the U.S., teachers whose schools participate in the High School of Business™ program work, train, and collaborate together as they teach rigorous, project-based courses. We provide the course guides, the instructional materials, the assessments, the training, and the ongoing support. All of which are updated annually to stay current with industry needs. This system frees teachers to concentrate on teaching students instead of creating curriculum, and provides an ever-present network of professional and peer support.

Now is the time to consider adding High School of Business™ to your school in the 2021-22 school year. Here’s how to get started.

"I can honestly say I have not found a better hands-on approach to learning business skills that is both rigorous, challenging, and fulfilling for both the students to learn and teacher to teach."

—Maria Machin, Teacher, Eastern High (KY)

Ethics education resources have reached every state plus 19 countries, providing hundreds of thousands of students and their schools with no-cost resources that have saved schools over $22 million dollars so far. But thanks to the continuing generosity of the Daniels Fund, these numbers are only the beginning. Over the next five years, additional resources will become available for high schools as well as middle schools and community colleges. It is our honor to partner with the Daniels Fund and with educators to teach principle-based ethical decision-making to students. Learn how to access ethics resources available for high school students.

Work-Based Learning Resources

Whether your students are back in the classroom or learning virtually these days, work-based learning (WBL) experiences continue to play an imperative role in career and technical education. Although the phrase “work-based learning” is analogous with internships in some educators’ minds, WBL can take many more shapes and sizes. In fact, Perkins V defines work-based learning as both “sustained interactions with industry or community professionals in real workplace settings, to the extent practicable, or simulated environments at an educational institution that foster in-depth, firsthand engagement with the tasks required in a given career field.”
What does that mean for you? It means that even if your only interaction with your students right now is through Zoom or Google Hangouts, you should still expose your students to meaningful WBL experiences tied to your curricula and instruction. And as usual, MBA Research is here to help you. If you are an educator in a state with a standard, full, or enhanced membership in the MBA Research consortium, you have access to a full set of WBL resources in the State’s Connection website. These WBL activities, 100% aligned with the National Standards for Business Administration, help your students develop the confidence, skills, and knowledge needed for career success.

Ethics Resource
Ethics for Any Intro Course

Ethics education is a perfect (and needed) topic for all courses, not just business and marketing. Not sure where to start? Consider this advice from April Miller, VP of Product Development: Start with a lesson module (LAP) titled Rules To Live By (Nature of Ethics) [LAP-EI-123], which covers the basics of ethics. If you'd like to add one or two more modules, April suggests What’s the Situation? (Reasons for Ethical Dilemmas) [LAP-EI-124] and Make the Right Choice (Recognizing and Responding to Ethical Dilemmas) [LAP-EI-125].

More resources for teaching ethics are available through the generous support of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative High School Program.
