Please make sure you hand your rubric to the teacher BEFORE you start your presentation. Remember to practice (and then practice again) before you try to win the Lions over.

Fast fashion is a major contributor to the world's clothing waste problem. Many of us give our old clothes to charity or drop them in a store take-back bin, but you might be surprised to learn most of it is sold and can end up in the landfill.
You will need this handout to help guide your learning.
By definition, business ethics are the moral principles that act as guidelines for the way a business conducts itself. In many ways, the same guidelines that individuals use to conduct themselves in an acceptable way, in personal and professional settings, apply to businesses as well.
We are going to spend the next few days looking at the concept of Business Ethics. You will need this handout to guide your learning.
Today we are going to look at the last software package we will be introduced to this semester. We will use this PowerPoint to delve into the world of databases, and how we can use data to answer questions and provide analysis. Box Office Mojo is an excellent example of a movie database.
This is the first assignment that we will be working on over the next few days. Make sure you submit your completed work in the appropriate assignment folder under our Team.
Please watch the video below and create a query for your database. Call me over when you are ready to show me how it works.
A few of us will be away today on a field trip to the University of Guelph. As you well know, this does not mean that the learning in the classroom comes to a halt for the day. This checklist should help you focus on the development of your venture for your pitch in the Lions' Den. This will be your last opportunity to work on this project this week, so please make good use of your time.
We are going to spend two days this week working on preparations for our Culminating Assignment. The CA will not be due until the middle of January, but you will need time out of class to develop some of your materials and practice your presentations. That is why we are starting now. You should budget approximately 1 hour a week to develop your final pitch presentation. This activity has been structured to use all the skills you have learned in the course and give you an opportunity to show how talented you are using them.
It is always best to learn from the successes and failures of others. If you'd like to watch more episodes of Dragon's Den Canada you can find them on the CBC website.
This PowerPoint will serve as your guide as you prepare to enter the Lions' Den. This rubric is for that presentation (there will be other CA rubrics along the way...)
We have started on the road to learning how to use spreadsheet software, focusing on Microsoft Excel.
You will need the data from your questionnaires from Monday to complete our warm up exercise today. Hopefully, you have entered the info into your spreadsheet and are ready to go!
After today's lesson, you will need to complete the Spirit Wear and Children in Need Activities. While both will assessed, you can pick the one that you would like to be evaluated as a example of your ability to use spreadsheets. The videos below are a good resource if you are stuck.
We have spent the last few classes looking at Adobe InDesign and learning how to use some of the basic functions. Now is time for you to use all your graphic design knowledge from last week and combine it with this powerful new tool.
We are going to take or so to look at effective web design, and to use some user-friendly software to develop our own site. We will be using Weebly, but if you prefer to use another cloud-based program (such as Wix), please come talk to me about it first.
Each of you have been given a Weebly account, and we will walk through the log-in process at the start of class. To login and get started go to http://students.weebly.com

Before you begin you'll need this handout for your notes, and don't forget to look at the info-graphic on dos and don'ts of website design before you start to plan out your amazing site.
You are going to need this rubric when you are finished (and we all know that we should read it over BEFORE we even begin working on our assignment...)
This is the big project we talked about yesterday. It will be the most intensive assignment you have done this far. You will have to use your time wisely during class, as time management is a major factor in your ability to produce a top quality assignment.
You are not limited in choice of presentation software package. It is about the presentation itself, not the tool you used to create it.
You will need this package before you start. Here are some tips to help you with your presentation skills.
We will pick topics today.
Before you start, take the time to watch and LISTEN to this video.
