This guide provides business teachers with practical ideas for teaching general business. Content is presented in seven sections. The first two sections list fourteen behavioral objectives for a general business course and offer suggestions for course content. Section 3 discusses problems in teaching general business, including reading, arithmetic skills, and motivation. Section 4 covers teaching-learning strategies and includes discussions on individualization, grouping for temporary projects, self-selection in reading and interest groups, independent work, individual and small group conferences, questions for teachers to consider in selecting strategies, and guidelines for teaching-learning activities. Section 5 suggests from five to twenty-three teaching-learning activities (correlated with the fourteen behavioral objectives) for each of the following twelve general business course units: the private enterprise system; changes in the economic system; forms of business organization; individual contributions to the economic system; money management; problems in money management caused by the economic situation; banks in our economic system; role of credit; insurance; savings and investments; rights and responsibilities of workers, investors, business firms, and the government; and career choice. Section 6 discusses student evaluation and includes learning activity packages, contracts, activities lists, small group work, and evaluating a student's total performance.
