Accounting Systems 40S. Interim Guide.
Manitoba Dept. of Education and Training, Winnipeg.
This curriculum guide was developed for a senior-level accounting course for students in high schools in Manitoba. The course is designed for students who plan to engage in an entry-level accounting position or self-employment after graduation and for students who plan postsecondary study in accounting and business. The course builds on and reinforces the concepts, skills, and understandings mastered in introductory accounting (Accounting Principles 30G). Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) are discussed and analyzed as they are currently applied to small and larger businesses. The guide includes the following components: (1) an employability skills profile; (2) recommended program patterns for business education courses; (3) rationale for the program; (4) evaluation methods; (5) time allotments; (6) goals and objectives; and (7) six units of study. The units cover these topics: review of accounting principles, synoptic journal, adjustments and closing entries, inventory systems, application packages, and options. Units consist of a goal, objectives, and teaching methods keyed to the objectives. A bibliography listing 18 texts, 11 computer programs, and a source for materials completes the guide. (KC)
