Classroom Activities​

Empowered’s learning model, Principles + Markets = Mindset (PMM), can be added to any lesson plan or classroom activity regardless of lesson, subject, curriculum, pedagogy, or methodology in any setting, grade, or class type. How can we say that? We’re teacher-validated.
We’ve worked alongside educators to create and improve our library of 120+ PMM-infused activities that can be customized and used in any classroom and we’ve worked to add PMM to teacher-provided activities, too. Each of our activities, available at no financial cost to you, includes:
  • Activity Overviews
  • Recommended Materials
  • Approximate Timing
  • Suggested Steps
  • Potential Debrief Questions/Discussion Topics
We offer activities, all of which can be used based on concept (vs. subject matter) in any classroom, in the following three categories:
