Experiencing the Free Enterprise System through Industrial Arts. Industrial Arts Series 10,000.
Hinrichs, Roy S., Comp.
The manual provides information and guidelines necessary to develop a knowledge and understanding of industry based on the belief this can best be done by studying industry. Intended for use at the junior high school level, the manual is divided into two sections. The first contains information designed to give insight into industry and the free enterprise system in which it operates. It discusses capital; organization; marketing research; engineering; the roles of departments of personnel, purchasing, and public relations; production and its planning; distribution; advertising and sales; and terminating a corporation. Each division includes a list of terms the student should know and suggestions for discussion and research topics. The second section is an instruction unit to be used as a guide in setting up and operating a small student industry. The section divisions parallel those of the first section. The two sections are meant to be used simultaneously with the aim of creating an interesting blend of classwork and laboratory activities. (Author/AG)
