This guide provides teachers with a business exploration curriculum for grade 9. The course is designed to introduce beginning students to the language of business, to careers, to consumerism, to economics, and to technology. An "Overview" section presents the rationale, describes the program structure, and lists program goals and objectives. The "Implementation" section covers program design, scope and sequence, time allotment, integration, selection of materials, evaluation, and students with special needs. The curriculum is divided into six modules: career exploration, consumerism, accounting and data processing, office procedure, marketing, and keyboarding (typewriting). Each module includes notes and suggested time, major objectives, and student objectives (and topics) with suggested activities and note and resources.
