Coffeeology is an elective course that I created that fosters the concept of 21st century learning (collaboration, inquiry, critical thinking, innovation, and creativity) to develop research skills and a sense of responsibility, whilst also learning practical skills. At the end of the year, students will have finished a research poster that follows one of the following topics/theme: develop strategies enhance flavoring of coffee (through using different qualities of water, roasting methods, brewing methods and techniques), different styles of coffee art, or business/marketing strategies to increase sales at our store very own coffee store! I am co-teaching with another teacher (a former coffee shop owner and barista)
Students will develop the knowledge of opening their own coffee shop if they so choose!
You can check the process of what students have done and maybe even learn a few things as well.
