Ms. Draper’s 6th Grade Class

by Paul Wilson


I have the great honor everyday this week to teach marketing to Ms. Draper’s 6th grade class. Today was our first day going over all the essentials: web safety, the purpose of business, the different types of business, goals, and of course blogging. My hopes for this class is to show that anyone can make money on the web—yes, even at the age of 11 and 12. Also, I will be having the kids coming on my blog and leaving comments. If you have any pearls of wisdom you want to teach please don’t hesitate. Below are the topics we covered in class and what the kids had to say about them.
