Bellringers: Start each class with a bellringer to spur classroom discussions.This product contains instructions/expectations, a bellringer form, and 64 Introduction to Business and Marketing bellringer questions and sample responses. Topics include: business concepts and operations, marketing, finance, social responsibility/ethics, and employability skills/career exploration. Bellringers are the perfect tool for students to reflect on their learning. They also give teachers the much needed time to take attendance, work out test make-ups, give instructions for missed work, and distribute materials for the class period.

Question break down:
21 Business Concepts and Operations (economics, business ownership, entrepreneurship, etc.)
2 Social Responsibility and Ethics
24 Marketing (marketing mix, functions, social media, sales, advertising, etc.)
8 Financial (financial plan, budget, expenses, financial statements, etc.) 
9 Employability Skills and Career Exploration

I have students complete the bellringer form by writing the question exactly as it appears on the board, then coming up with their own response. After students have had time to complete the question, we discuss the answer as a class. Students then have the opportunity to correct their answers as needed.

Bellringers are in an editable PowerPoint and the bellringer form is a PDF. Questions are written with complete sentences. Answers are not written in complete sentences. I love using bellringers because it provides structure to each class period. It also gives me time to take attendance and speak to students on an individual basis.

50 Introduction to Business and Marketing Quick Writes: Looking for a way to integrate writing into your business curriculum? Try adding 5-10 minute quick writes! This product contains 50 open-ended writing prompts for various business concepts including: economics, ethics and social responsibility,  business concepts and operations, entrepreneurship and leadership, marketing and advertising, communication and culture, finance and accounting, and careers. These writing prompts will help students apply course concepts, reflect on their learning, and develop writing fluency. You can also use this tool to assess student learning. Quick writes can easily be integrated into the start, middle, or end of your lesson. You can use quick writes as exit tickets or to start a discussion on a particular topic with students sharing out what they've written.
