Montana Curriculum Guidelines for Distributive Education. Revised.
Harris, Ron, Ed.
These distributive education curriculum guidelines are intended to provide Montana teachers with teaching information for 11 units. Units cover introduction to marketing and distributive education, human relations and communications, operations and control, processes involved in buying for resale, merchandise handling, sales promotion, sales and service, management and decision making, entrepreneurship, economics and marketing, and introduction to computers. For each unit of instruction, these components are provided: an introduction, performance objectives, outline of topics, occupational codes (occupations to which the performance objective and outline are related), and a listing of instructional resources. (The 18 occupations to which the units are related are listed in the introductory material.) Case studies and/or additional resources are found at the end of units. A second section of the guidelines contains competitive events for these areas: advertising services, apparel and accessories, finance and credit, food marketing, food service, general merchandising, and petroleum. For each event are provided the competencies, objective, description, procedure, timing, administrative suggestions, materials and personnel needed, criteria for evaluation, and solution. These materials provide practice to prepare students for competitive events or a contest to test proficiency in the subject area. (YLB)
