Parkway West Area Vocational-Technical School, Oakdale, PA.
This report is the outcome of a project to review existing competency-based entrepreneurship curriculum materials and develop a 30-hour course to be used in all vocational-technical curricula at Parkway West Area Vocational School (Pennsylvania). Following a brief project description, the bulk of the document is composed of a teacher's manual and student activity guide. Eight units are included: (1) understanding the nature of small business; (2) developing a business plan; (3) identifying types of ownership and legal responsibilities; (4) promoting your business; (5) starting your own business; (6) maintaining financial records; (7) managing employer/employee relations; and (8) protecting your business. The teacher's manual contains an introduction, teaching plans for each objective, and teacher lecture notes. The teaching plan identifies the unit, task, time allotted for each task, and a performance objective. For each class activity, supplementary materials are listed, and procedures for evaluation that identify the ways a teacher can monitor student progress are provided. Each unit in the student activity guide has a list of unit objectives and student activity sheet for each objective. Fifty-three references are included. (NLA)
