  • Focusing Activity
    Think-Pair-Share regarding different experiences and knowledge of Business
    To cover as many countries as possible, students from the larger groups (e.g. India and Brazil) will work with partners from other countries.
    In pairs, students will discuss their different experiences of business environments. Also, students will discuss their knowledge of global attitudes about business.
    Then, groups may choose to volunteer to tell the rest of their class what they have discussed regarding personal experiences and global attitudes regarding business.
    The goal of this exercise is to learn the broad range of experiences with business environments as customers, employees, employers, sole proprietors, contractors, etc.
