Entrepreneurship: wheels can give you wings!

Module 6

Write a report

Activity 1:

Gear up for action - a personal opinion

[lo 4.4, 5.2.3]

Think carefully about the “wheels” that we use as a mode of transport, and then complete the following survey on your own. Write your answers to the questions in the given spaces. You will need these notes for the discussion and survey (Activity 2) and when you write your report (Activity3).

1. Which “wheels” are the most expensive to (a) buy? (b) maintain?

(a) _____________________Price: ____________________________

(b) Why are these “wheels” expensive to maintain?

2. Name the “wheels” which you believe are the most dangerous to handle.

Explain why you think this is true:

3. Which “wheels” are the most difficult to master?

Explain why this is the case.

4. Which “wheels” are actually useful to own? Write down the names and jot down key words to explain how they can be useful.

Activity2:

[lo 4.4.1]

Discuss your opinions on each of the issues in Activity 1. Write down your choice and total the votes in your group. You will need this information for the report you will be writing in the next activity.

Most expensive to buy
Most expensive to maintain
Most dangerous
Most difficult to handle
Most useful

Activity 3:

Write a report

Choose a partner from your group.

Each pair must prepare a written report on one of the topics above.

Use the GUIDELINES below to make sure that you have written an effective report:
