The workshop consists of interactive activities that will provide a general understanding of how core subjects integrate with Business Process Modeling as it applies to developing a fundamental idea along with discovering career opportunities. Students will be required to participate in team building activities, concept/idea development, and critical thinking exercises. Please reference the Workshop Outline section below for further details.
Throughout the workshop, students are informed of the mapping of core subjects (Math, Science, ELA, Literacy) to careers. As the students/parents examine each process model along with the careers related to the individual process model, each career definition emphasizes the subjects/classes required to pursue that particular career. During the Entrepreneur session of the workshop, processes are revealed and subjects/classes are mapped to each process.
Day to day activities of the individual career is examined and mapped to a core subject. At the end of the workshop, the students will have a clear understanding of how to map core subjects/class requirements to career choices.
