Education for Business in Iowa: Curriculum and Reference Guide.
Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines.
In recognition of the need to strengthen schools' efforts in developing students' awareness of the technological, consumer, occupational, recreational, and cultural aspects of business, this guide was compiled to provide information assisting those who design and implement curricula relating to business. The first division consists of statements by the Policies Commission for Business and Economic Education that specify guiding principles for developing a business education program and strategies for coping with expected future changes. Division 2 provides curricular models and course descriptions for four different business-related areas: basic business, office education (secretarial, administrative support, information processing), marketing education, and accounting. A section on business enrichment follows, including such areas as business mathematics, economics, career education, small business management, continuing (adult) business education, the cooperative method in vocational training, and multioccupation programs. Division 3 covers special resources, demands, and concerns affecting business education, such as students with special needs, professional organizations, sex equity, public relations, and program evaluation, followed by existing community college programs, certification requirements, and education agencies in Iowa.
