He talked about his problems controlling unruly students and his strategy of using real life examples to interest and teach at risk children how to run a small business. He included a few graphics slides. He also showed a movie trailer for the documentary film, Ten9Eight: Shoot the Moon, about some of the teenagers competing in the annual business plan competition held by the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship.
