Nichols, Natalie P.
This guide is designed to aid high school teachers of business law in Pennsylvania to structure their courses. Specifically, it is intended to help teachers identify and place correct emphasis upon those areas of business law which will most nearly meet the students' needs when they reach adulthood, to help teachers to inculcate in the students the necessity for acceptable social values when dealing with others, and to help teachers explore alternative teaching strategies useful in the presentation of business law in their classes. The guide is organized in nine chapters, and also contains a bibliography of business law books, periodicals, and sources. Topics covered in the teaching guide include the following: philosophy, goals, and objectives of the high school business law course; course content for a semester, year, or mini-course; teaching legal vocabulary; teaching legal fundamentals; teaching law as applied to contracts: contracts dealing with property; laws that govern business relations of individuals; and student and teacher evaluation. Throughout the chapters, teaching suggestions are given, and technical background knowledge needed by teachers is provided. (KC)
