A project was organized around a series of activities to prepare materials or disseminations for small business management education programs. Activities were as follow: (1) prepare needs assessment procedures for determining the number and types of businesses to be served by a small business management education program; prepare model legislation; (2) develop course curriculum for postsecondary or adult students planning to go into business; (3) update and expand curriculum materials developed under a previous grant: an addendum to Volume III, Small Business Management; (4) prepare an instructor's manual for interpreting small business analysis; (5) conduct conferences for state vocational education personnel to familiarize them with adult programs in small business management; (6) conduct a workshop for local school agency personnel who will be responsible for program organization and operation; and (7) participate in group meetings associated with entrepreneurship. As a result of the project, various products were developed: a needs assessment package, model legislation, state plan materials, a conference program, a course of study for training small business teachers, fifteen "going into business" modules, curriculum addendum to Volume III, Volume II (Business Analysis), and an instructor's manual for interpreting the small business analysis.
