The Women Entrepreneurs Project. Final Report.
McCaslin, Barbara S.; And Others
Business ownership training materials appropriate for uses in vocational education settings with women clients were developed and tested. A survey of California women business owners was made to identify the characteristics and needs of women entrepreneurs. A series of eight self-paced, student-centered Learning Activities Packages (LAP's) was then developed which takes the learner step by step through the process of preparing a business plan. An Instructor's Guide was developed to provide instructors with explicit information needed to successfully teach a course using these eight LAP's. A pilot workshop was conducted with eight women to test the curriculum materials. The materials and the workshop format were evaluated by the workshop participants and the guest experts. Based on their input and the Advisory Committee's suggestions, the instructional materials were revised and tested in a final workshop involving forty-six participants. A third-party evaluation of the project indicates that the curriculum materials and program design are effective in meeting the objectives of the project. (The appendix, comprising one-half of this report, includes workshop materials, such as assessment and evaluation forms, publicity announcements and agendas, and the California women business owners survey questionnaire and frequency distribution. The eight LAP's and the Instructor's Guide are contained in two related documents--CE 017 321-322.) (EM)
