He is the author of the popular Crash Course book series which includes: Crash Course US History, Crash Course World History, Crash Course Economics, Crash Course Government and Politics, and Crash Course Psychology. Morante was formerly a teacher in Los Angeles, California before his current role as a multi-subject author. He has spoken at multiple AP teacher training seminars throughout California about the benefits of both hybridized and online education after more than two decades of teaching various subjects in the field of education. Prior to his teaching career, he was formally a sports and news journalist as well as an editor for the Santa Monica Mirror Newspaper in Santa Monica, California.
This book effectively translates YouTube video sensations Evelyn Ngugi's and Anna Akana's Business Crash Courses into guided question worksheets. Best practice has students following along with the Crash Course Business videos online in order to contemplate the future of their own business with this interactive guiding question workbook. The book may also be used as a supplementary business workbook without the YouTube videos and serve as a guided question business course broken down lesson by lesson for beginning college-level business classes. Crash Course Business: A Study Guide of Worksheets for Business is divided into two sections: Soft Skills and Entrepreneurship. Guided questions posed in Crash Course Business help students tap into level 3 and 4 DOK (Depth of Knowledge) thinking skills surrounding events that have or will occur throughout their business career. Any student of business wishing to pass both a high school business class or a college level general business course would find this workbook useful. Crash Course Business covers all the basics of business and more! This book can be used in concordance with both high school and college business classes in order to improve test scores, content understanding, and essay structure when writing about topics in business.
Students of business ages 16-30 would benefit from using this interactive guiding question workbook. Teachers of Business would also benefit by having this book inside of their library of business books.
