Peter gave students one simple prompt to unleash the creators, innovators and entrepreneurs in his business studies class:

“Create a business around a single product or service to help improve your experience at school.”

And then he got out of their way.

  • Frame empowering learning experiences
  • Provide a simple roadmap to help students reflect regularly and build their work
  • Transform students into self-managers using one simple tool
  • Manage student teams without ever telling them what to do
