White Collar Crime. Instructor's Guide [and] Student Materials. Business Issues in the Classroom. Revised.
Maxey, Phyllis F.
One of a series of units on business issues designed for secondary school students, this packet examines white collar crime. Teacher and student materials are provided in two separate sections. The teacher's guide contains four lesson plans as well as research project recommendations, student handouts, answer keys, and suggestions for using a business person as classroom resource. The student materials section presents readings on the insurance business, government regulatory agencies, and corporation management. Also included is a case study of insurance company fraud. Presented as a skit, this case illustrates the responsibilities of the Board of Directors and corporate management to stockholders and customers, the responsibilities of government watchdog agencies, and the responsibilities of accountants in their audits of a corporation's financial records. Follow-up discussion and a vocabulary review sheet complete the unit. (LP)
