A Handbook for Business Education in Iowa.
Iowa Business Education Association.; Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines.
Developed by pooling the knowledge and experience of business education teachers throughout the state, this program guide and manual should be useful to both teachers and administrators in articulating and operating business education programs. Major sections concern: (1) a capsule history of Iowa business education, (2) philosophy and related principles of business education, helpful in developing various levels of programs, (3) general responsibilities of business education, the advisory committee, evaluation, public relations, etc., (4) curriculums in the business programs of a secondary school, (5) post secondary program trends in Iowa, including ideas on course implementation and several bibliographies, and (6) an appendix including information on teacher certification, a taxonomy system for business education, and definitions of business education terms. Although each educational level is covered, primary emphasis is given to secondary schools, whose business programs cover all of Iowa. Students, counselors, curriculum committees, school board members, and the interested public will find this handbook informative for their own purposes. (JS)
