Charles Brown (2017)Pageland, SC
Brown’s innovative teaching idea, “Eagles Graphics,” focuses on coupling marketing principles with creative and entrepreneurial skills. Students market graphic and screen printing services to organizations and individuals within Central High and its feeder schools. In groups, students will create their own themed shirt, produce the shirt and market it. Students come up with promotions and even develop ads, and sales aids. Brown believes that the program merges marketing, digital desktop publishing, photography and screen printing – and enables students to perform tasks that touch all facets of what they would encounter in the real world.
