PACE. A Program for Acquiring Competence in Entrepreneurship. Part I: Getting Ready to Become an Entrepreneur. Unit B: Are You an Entrepreneur? Research and Development Series No. 194 A-2.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
This three-part curriculum for entrepreneurship education is primarily for postsecondary level, including four-year colleges and adult education, but it can be adapted for special groups or vocational teacher education. The emphasis of the three instructional units in Part I is understanding businesses. Unit B focuses on individual and motivational makeup of successful entrepreneurs. Intended to help the individual decide realistically if he/she should become an entrepreneur, the unit highlights motives characteristically associated with entrepreneurial behavior and identifies personal qualities/skills/characteristics deemed essential to successful entrepreneurial activity. A discussion of problem solving and decision making is included to aid in planning career goals and developing achievement-oriented goals. Material is organized into three levels of learning which progress from simple to complex concepts: Exposure, Exploration, and Preparation/Adaptation. Each level contains preassessment; teaching/learning objectives; substantive information (questions in margins guide the students' reading); activities, including a postassessment; and a self-evaluation. Definitions of important terms are found at the beginning of the unit; a bibliography and listing of sources for further information are appended. The four-page instructor's guide contains the teaching/learning objectives, teaching/learning delivery suggestions, and pre/postassessment suggested responses. (YLB)
