This class is taught in English.
Students will learn how bold, forward-thinking entrepreneurs make a big difference on the world. These empires were started in garages making cars, planes, computers and phones before recreating not only U.S. life, but everyone worldwide. These inspirational stories are meant to make students think how they can turn their ideas into real experiences. How they can make a difference in their lives and on the world like these pioneers. Class discussion will include each student’s idea of what they’d like to create.
I'm a lifelong storyteller as a Washington newspaper journalist of 43 years and a licensed tour guide for 10 years.

My other classes include the Lincoln assassination, Eight Founding Fathers Who Created a Nation and 7 Athletes Who Changed America.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
