Distributive Education in the Secondary Schools: A Tentative Program.
Chicago Board of Education, IL.
This program guide for distributive education was developed as a cooperative effort of the Chicago Public Schools and the business community to help the teacher-coordinator establish a cooperative program and organize related activities and classroom instruction. Information is provided on the role of the teacher-coordinator, program activities such as the daily report of training station activities, public relations activities and further opportunities for study in distributive education. Included in the program guide are nine basic or group instruction units, among which are units on (1) selling and buying, (2) stock control, (3) advertising and merchandising, (4) store organization and management, and (5) economics of distribution. Individualized instruction is incorporated into the program through the use of training plans for 26 types of training stations, while group instruction is used for teaching the basic understandings, concepts, and skills required for employment. Much use is made of sample forms, illustrations, and charts. (JS)
