Chances are that you were probably never taught about co‑operatives when you were in school. But why would you be? Co‑op business enterprises are small time, right?
This is the introduction to All 4 Each: A Unit to Inspire a Co-operative Conscience. All 4 Each consists of a five-lesson unit culminating in a final assignment for student-entrepreneurs: generating a co-op business plan.
The lessons are written to be instantly accessible for anyone presenting the material, regardless of their prior knowledge of co-operatives. All 4 Each is easily adapted to a number of classes; from business to civics and world studies.
The course packs include everything a teacher (or trained session leader) requires to present the lessons, including background material, handouts, assignments, presentation resources and discussion topics. Material is relevant to co-ops and communities across the country and the lessons can be easily presented in any classroom in Canada.
