Microsociety and ja biztown
Microsociety and JA Biztown

Microsociety is a structure under which we run our classrooms. It allows us to bring the “real world” systems into our classrooms in order to educate our students in both academic content and the outside world (and bring it home to their families)

Biztown allows us to make the link between school and “real world” even more solid. It provides us with core lessons that helps us set up and frame what with do with our classroom economy that mirrors that of the world.

Both systems allow students to do “jobs”, earn money and spend that money. They also make sure that students have to pay for things that they need and want in order to be successful (rent, fines, taxes, extras)
