Ten units on the basic knowledge and skills needed to manage a small business are provided in this curriculum guide designed for use with secondary and postsecondary students. Unit topics include forms of businesses, marketing, location, systems and records, promotion, pricing, human relations, financing a business, and effects of business decisions. At the beginning of each unit is a summary page containing a synopsis of the unit's content, student learning objectives, teaching strategies, teacher preparation required, mini-problems, and references. Following the summary page of each unit are teacher and student materials. The teacher materials provide guidelines for presentation of instructional materials and include lecture and discussion notes, suggestions for conducting class activities, and recommended questions to be asked by the teacher to confirm students' understanding. The student materials are in the form of information sheets, worksheets, case study materials, interview forms, and project instructions. A glossary of financial terms concludes the guide. (JH)
