Continuation of Futuring the Business Education Curriculum Needs.
City Univ. of New York, NY. Inst. for Research and Development in Occupational Education.
This report contains six papers on preparing business education students and teachers to meet projected job needs. The papers, presented at four meetings of the New York Statewide Business Education Review Committee, address four major topics: (1) identifying projected skills, attitudes, and knowledge expected of entry level business employees in the 1980s and 1990s, (2) developing curricular competencies, (3) implementing curricular organization and competencies, and (4) determining the place of personal use skills in business education. In the first paper, Marla S. Batchelder predicts the employee skills big business will need in the next twenty years. In the second paper Gloria Ortner Chapman examines recent research to forecast needed aptitudes and skills and suggest ways schools can prepare students for tomorrow. George Meyer, in the third paper, predicts future educational requirements for entry level government workers. In the paper following, Gerald W. Faust proposes a method for extending the development of competency-based business education curriculum for New York State. The fifth paper, by Fred S. Cook and Rita C. Richey, introduces a process to develop and implement a New York State high school business education program. In the final paper, Hobard H. Conover looks at the present and future of New York's business teacher education. An appendix contains Detroit Public Schools' teacher-developed competencies/objectives. (CSS)
