Minding Your Own Small Business. Teacher's Manual.
Athena Corp., Bethesda, MD.
The one-semester high school course in small business ownership/management for which this manual is designed is intended to easily articulate with both general and vocational education curricula. Focus of the course is on general management skills with opportunity to develop and practice problem solving, decisionmaking, and resource management. Included in the manual is the entire curriculum outline divided into content (the topic of each module, a brief summary of the content, and concepts and objectives) and process (estimated time to cover the content of the module, the particular teaching strategy used, and the preparation necessary to teach the module). The 35 modules are divided into four units: "The Sixteen Hour Day,""The Market is People,""Dollars and Decisions," and"Managing for Success." (Two small business simulation games which are an integral part of the curriculum, 23 class periods, are bound separately.) Also included in this manual are (1) sample evaluations for each of the units with questions of both an objective and subjective nature, (2) copies of all the student information sheets needed, (3) a list of references to other materials related to the content of each module, (4) a glossary of relevant terminology, and (5) an annotated bibliography covering the subject of small business.
