Tying it Together: These activities help connect and apply the concepts from the lesson with a series of questions that draw students through a relevant business situation--one scenario, all lesson concepts.

Assignment: Comprehensive assessment covering all lesson concepts. Question types include check boxes, multiple choice, and fill in the blank.

You Make the Decision: In 7 different lessons, students have the opportunity to choose their own adventure in these interactive, media-rich activities. Every decision impacts the outcome of the scenario, creating a unique business experience for each student.

Writing Activity: There are 6 scenario-based writing assessments that offer students point-of-need writing support and editing tools while automatically scoring submissions on a comprehensive rubric.

In the News: These are lesson-specific, timely articles that are written by introduction to business instructors, and include discussion questions. New articles flow into the learning path throughout the semester.

Study Tools: This folder contains popular student study resources like lecture slides, flashcards, and practice quizzes.
