Model Store Curriculum. A Developmental Model for North Dakota Schools. Final Report. Research Series No. 13.
Goschen, Todd; Warcup, Dennis
The final report evaluates the activities of the first nine weeks of a project designed to develop a curriculum guide for a school-model store at a North Dakota high school. The program combines the favorable aspects of both the school store and the model store, providing "live" experiences as well as simulated ones. The Distributive Education One curriculum is built into the store. The major retailing functions--merchandising, management, sales promotion, and finance are the foundations on which the store and the project are developed. Students are grouped into one of the retailing functions for nine weeks, rotating at the end of the period. The report presents the rationale for the program, a general description of its design, and suggested implications of the school store. (NJ)
