Approved Study Guide and Workbook – Teacher’s Edition

The Approved! Study Guide & Workbook Teacher’s Edition is designed for easy integration with both Approved! and the accompanying Workbook & Study Guide, while also providing instructors with the opportunity to fully integrate the concepts, skills, and strategies from Approved! into their own course curriculum.

Each chapter in the Teacher’s Edition includes key learning objectives, case studies, and suggested topics for in-class discussion, along with infographics and other references from the text.

Each chapter in the Approved! Study Guide & Workbook also includes one or more “Discussion Topics for Entrepreneurs” that can be used to improve student's understanding of the real-life requirements and the expectations that come with starting and running a business. These topics will stimulate critical thought and reflect challenges that they may face in real-world business situations.

The exercises and response questions are tailored to emphasize the key concepts that all entrepreneurs should understand as they undertake the loan application process. In fact, students and self-taught entrepreneurs alike will find that many of the short responses and projects can be modified for future use in real-life business scenarios.
