Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
This three-part curriculum for entrepreneurship education is primarily for postsecondary level, including four-year colleges and adult education, but it can be adapted for special groups or vocational teacher education. The emphasis of the seven instructional units in Part II is on establishing a business. Unit B focuses on choosing a business location. It acquaints the student with some factors that should be considered when selecting the business site. Some topics include buying an existing business and site selection for various types of businesses. Activities are designed to provide first-hand experience in looking for, finding, and selecting a business site. Material is organized into three levels of learning which progress from simple to complex concepts: Exposure, Exploration, and Preparation/Adaptation. Each level contains preassessment; teaching/learning objectives; substantive information (questions in margins guide the students' reading); activities, including a postassessment; and a self-evaluation. Definitions of important terms are found at the beginning of the unit; a bibliography and listing of sources for further information are appended. The four-page instructor's guide contains the teaching/learning objectives, teaching/learning delivery suggestions, and pre/postassessment suggested responses. (YLB)
