For supplemental PDF lessons by Dee Adams: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Finding-Your-Niche
The listings below are included with permission. No one paid for inclusion.
Missing on many educational sites is a business or entrepreneurial category.
But on TPT (Teachers Pay Teachers), you’ll find a wide range of learning resources for aspiring entrepreneurs in all age groups.
Educators have developed many innovative ways to teach business-related subjects and skills for classroom or independent study.
Gifted, adult, high school, second grade, and even younger students, in some cases, will find appealing content that arouses curiosity.
Creative writing and the entrepreneur
Bonus tips for adult learners
When a challenging subject is involved start with material created for a child then work upward.
Note that lessons on this list could also be used by aspiring adult entrepreneurs to revisit and review
challenging childhood subjects …Identify problem issues areas early on rather than after startup.
Searching for several hours, I compiled some interesting niche finds on the list that follows.
