NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Nov. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- YouCan2 Publishing is blazing the trail to college readiness and life skills with its exciting new program, The 21st Century Student's Guide to Commerce and Innovation, due to hit the education market in January 2015. YouCan2 is the high school imprint of Tween Publishing, well-known for its popular resources teaching middle school students good work habits, time management, organizational and study skills.
"Every century has skills and knowledge particularly relevant to the times," says founder and author, Susan Mulcaire. "In the 21st century, these are clearly global commerce, business, and innovation. Every student should have a basic understanding of these things."
The 21st Century Student's Guide to Commerce and Innovation provides a solid foundation for students to develop a higher level of understanding and life-long interest in these subjects. The curriculum takes students on a journey through barter and trade, money, currency, innovation, entrepreneurialism, capitalism, venture capital, the stock market, and global free trade agreements. Along the way, students take "side trips" learning about the roles of the SEC, USPTO, Federal Reserve, IMF, World Bank, World Trade Organization, Eurozone, and other key global players."
Much of the content is presented tabloid-style, through comics and comical vignettes. "There's no reason why students can't have a couple of laughs while learning," says Mulcaire. "But don't be fooled by the presentation -- the education gained in this course is among the most valuable and relevant students can receive. It's also classroom ready and easy-to-teach."
"It's a natural progression for us to move into the high school market. There's a real need at that level for quality, forward-thinking resources," says Mulcaire. "The 21st Century Student's Guide to Commerce and Innovation is a game-changer. My advice: Don't leave high school without it!"
Tween's innovative middle level resources include The Middle School Student's Guide to Study Skills, The Middle School Student's Guide to Ruling the World! and its fun introduction to postsecondary education, The Middle School Student's Guide to College.
