TEACH DECA DRIP: PROFESSIONAL SELLING EVENTS
If you have not yet looked at the Professional Selling and Consulting events, now is a great time to do so. There is a PowerPoint, student worksheet, and formative assessment on Teach DECA | Unit Two. Take it a step further, and have all of your students do one of the 3 event options as a project and then present to the class using zoom video conferencing software. You can use the actual competitive event evaluation as your scoring rubric. The topic will change for next year, so this will be great practice in these events. Best part yet, it meets "demonstrate knowledge of the sales process" as a marketing standard!
