Competition in the Franchise Business. Instructor's Guide [and] Student Materials. Business Issues in the Classroom. Revised.
Maxey, Phyllis F.
One of a series of units designed to acquaint secondary students with business issues, this packet examines the franchise as a type of business organization. Teacher and student materials are provided in separate sections. The teacher's guide provides an overview, objectives, four detailed lesson plans, answer keys, background information, and recommendations for using a business person as a classroom resource. The student section contains six activities focusing on organizing a franchise and its accompanying problems. A reading explains the franchise relationship and offers a sample franchise agreement. Using a chart, students analyze the advantages and disadvantages of this type of business organization. Five fictional case studies and one legal case illustrate a variety of problems inherent in franchising. The unit concludes with a vocabulary worksheet which reviews key terms and concepts. (LP)
