Developing and Testing Simulated Occupational Experiences for Distributive Education Students in Rural Communities: Volume II: Curriculum Materials: Final Report.
Virginia Polytechnic Inst. and State Univ., Blacksburg.
Volume 2 of a three-volume final report presents curriculum materials developed as part of a research project which pilot tested a distributive education program for rural schools utilizing a retail store simulation plan. The materials for the two-year curriculum consist of "Competency Area Packets" (addressed to the student) for the following areas: advertising, communications, display, human relations, mathematics, merchandising, operations and management, product and service technology, and selling. The curriculum is designed to prepare first year students for selected entry-level distributive jobs and second year students for selected career-level distributive jobs. The materials are specified for classroom or simulation use, for year one or two, and are based on competencies common to a salesperson or an assistant buyer for a department store. A brief teacher-coordinator guide introduces each of the areas, outlines topics to include, and lists instructional materials. The packet materials for each area present competencies, individual learning activities, and group activities in a three-column format. Appended are: a three-page list of instructional materials, zone analyses of jobs in seven categories of business, and a suggested teaching sequence for the curriculum. (Author/MS)
