Online Course

Finding the Entrepreneurial Spirit Through Literature

Are you a high school or middle school teacher interested in incorporating dystopian literature into your classroom? Finding the Entrepreneurial Spirit gives you a solid grounding in the social, economic, and philosophical, principles that shape enterprise and shows you how to apply these concepts to an analysis of dystopian literature. Working with noted teachers, academic experts, and instructional designers, you will create powerful, classroom ready instructional units that enrich your students’ classroom learning.

You work through course material at your own pace, participate in a weekly 2-hour group discussion, and collaborate with a team to create curricula. Upon completion of the 30-hour course you will receive a certificate and three continuing education credits from University of Maryland’s Office of Extended Studies.
