Exploration of Retailing Careers.
Wilkie, Barbara J.
Designed as a semester unit of instruction at the middle or junior high school level in the exploration of retailing careers, this distributive education curriculum guide is divided into two sections: The Teacher's Guide and Student Materials. One of the elective courses intended as a followup to "Orientation to Marketing Careers," it provides the student with an opportunity to experience the tasks performed by retailers through "hands-on activity" projects making him aware of the broad field of marketing activities and the careers available to him within various retail businesses. The Teacher's Guide has nine units: (1) Rapping About Retailing, (2) Buying the Merchandise, (3) Shipping and Receiving, (4) Sales Promotion, (5) Personal Selling, (6) Customer Services, (7) Credit and Control, (8) Management, and (9) Special Activities which may be used throughout the course. These units are separated into three areas: (1) Unit Overview, which includes a competency statement, performance objectives, concepts developed, suggested equipment, recommended materials, consumable supplies needed, and special resources, (2) Evaluation Keys, and (3) Learning Activities, which contain group and individual learning activities for each performance objective and special media applicable to each objective and its set of learning activities. The Student Materials section is composed of (1) Student Handouts, (2) Scene and Survey Evaluation Instruments, and (3) Special Resources (Audio-Visuals, Resource Publications, Commercial Games, and Resource Organizations and Agencies).
