Minding Your Own Small Business. Simulation Game 1.
Athena Corp., Bethesda, MD.
Designed as an integral part of a one-semester course in small business ownership and management for high school students, this first of two simulation games is intended to be introduced after the students have received a general introduction to the principles of small business ownership and management. The game is divided into two segments--Starting a Business and Running a Business. The first section emphasizes choosing a location; the second segment emphasizes recordkeeping and the effect of pricing. Each segment is intended to take four consecutive class periods to play with a break of up to two weeks between the segments. In the game the students start and run simulated businesses with the objectives of applying the principles they have learned in class and of developing decisionmaking skills. Included in the manual are teaching-learning objectives, the teacher's guide to daily lessons (complete instructions for preparation, materials, classroom setup, student activity, discussion, evaluation, etc.), and the complete game materials. (The teacher's manual for the course of which the game is a part is bound separately.) (TA)
