Carney, Betty; Fourman, Thomas
The present college preparatory programs are too general to prepare students for the large number of available specialized postsecondary education programs. The pre-postsecondary business education curriculum for grades 11 and 12 provides experience-centered instruction through career exploration in business administration. A statement of the problems and philosophy, a list of the occupational areas, eight program objectives, the course content, and a list of resources materials are presented in the first part of the document. The body of the guide provides unit plans for the following business administration subject areas: an introduction to business, business mathematics, business English, economics, business law, introduction to data processing, accounting, human relations, management, finance, marketing, and statistics. Developmental objectives, program objectives, behavioral objectives, learning activities, and program implementation are presented for each unit. The course is approximately 36 weeks in length and uses the block teaching approach. Visual aids, practice sets, games, role playing, and simulation are used extensively throughout. The document concludes with an outline of six recommended evaluation methods. A four-page bibliography is appended. (Author/BP)
