  1. 1. A Correlation Between New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and JA BizTown™ May 2008 JA Worldwide® One Education Way Colorado Springs, CO 80906
  2. 2. JA BizTown™ JA BizTown is JA Worldwide’s experiential-based, elementary school capstone program. The program encompasses important elements of work-readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy, providing students with a solid foundation of business, economics, and free enterprise education. Furthermore, the program content augments students’ core curriculum in reading and mathematics. Throughout the program, students use critical thinking skills to learn about key concepts as they explore and enhance their understanding of free enterprise. Through daily lessons, hands-on activities, and active participation in a simulated community designed to support differentiated learning styles, students develop a strong understanding of the relationship between what they learn in school and successful participation in an economy. JA BizTown helps prepare students for a lifetime of learning and academic achievement. Following several weeks of classroom study, students participate in an exciting full-day visit to the JA BizTown site. At JA BizTown, students work as employees in various businesses (facilitated by volunteer educators and business professionals); they are paid for their labor, and they manage personal checking accounts. Throughout the day, students learn about time and money management skills as they work, bank, and shop as consumers. Following their participation in the JA BizTown simulation, students participate in debriefing lessons to ensure a well-rounded learning experience. These lessons allow students to reflect on their JA BizTown experience and further identify the relevance of classroom learning to their future plans and goals. The JA BizTown curriculum will help teachers and students achieve fifth grade academic standards in language arts literacy, mathematics, social studies and Career Education and Consumer, Family and Life Skills. The following listing of correlations is not meant to be exhaustive nor is it intended to infer that a resource will completely address any given standard; rather, the correlations listed relate to any curriculum content and connections that will enhance or complement the referenced standards.
