Methods and Materials for Entrepreneurship Education Project (MMEE). Phase III Report.
Scanlan, Thomas J.; And Others
After a summary of accomplishments of phases I and II of the Methods and Materials for Entrepreneurship Education Project (identification of entrepreneurship skills and development of curriculum materials designed to develop these skills in community college level courses), this phase III report describes field testing, revision, and publication of the curriculum materials. Revision and reorganization of the materials into three volumes on learning entrepreneurship skills, applying them, and supplementary materials are discussed. After mention of student assessment and printing and binding of the materials, contents of the volumes are discussed. Following a discussion of adaptations of the materials for use in settings other than community colleges and for purposes other than preparing people to become self-employed, procedures for establishing an approved course at Illinois community colleges are presented. Preliminary dissemination and implementation activities are outlined as a prelude to phase 4 which will include summative evaluation. The major appendix is the formative evaluation report (60 pages) describing pilot and main field tests at four Illinois colleges. Another appendix (45 pages) contains pre-designed projects for human service occupations developed by one teacher who adapted the entrepreneurship materials for training human service paraprofessionals.
