field trips to small business places around the area?
Work on speaking better English-hard to understand things with your accent.
To have a grade sheet on laulima to see how we are doing. To return the business plans sooner so we can understand what to do better.
None really
NA
Sample business plans, or where to find them (her idea of what was a good business plan) would have been very helpful.
Maybe writing up a better lecture for the weekly assignments. Perhaps using more PDF formats, so all students are able to access the assignments.
course grade should be readily available
Suggestions would be to start discussions on a consistent day each week. This will let students know when the end of the week will be if a certain amount of posts is needed per week for a good grade. Also, a more quick response to students' concerns, like a 1-2 day turn-around, would be most helpful.
