Entrepreneurship Education: Learning the Skills.
Scanlan, Thomas J.; And Others
Designed to emphasize entrepreneurial skills in relation to management and industry skills, this first volume of the Entrepreneurship Education curriculum guide is comprised of nineteen sessions. The initial session is an orientation to the course and is followed by eighteen sessions divided into four instructional units: (1) inner control, (2) innovation, (3) decision making, and (4) human relations. Each unit begins with a general overview which serves as an introduction to the skills addressed in the unit. Each unit contains from four to six sessions showing the relationship among eight entrepreneurial skills. The other entrepreneurial skills addressed are planning and goal setting, reality perception, using feedback, and risk taking. Each session follows a typical format that includes the following sections: why do this, materials, class activity, and a discussion guide for out-of-class activity. Materials such as transparencies, handouts, and out-of-class assignment sheets needed for the session are included at the end of each session. (A level 2 guide, which centers around student-planned projects, and a supplementary readings guide are also available--see Note.) (LRA)
