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 establishing a business. Unit D focuses on business regulations at the local, state, and federal levels affecting the operation of small businesses. It covers basic vocabulary and concepts concerning government rules and regulations and discusses government agencies, legislation, licensing regulations, and tax laws. The "Annotated List of Rules and Regulations" at the end of the unit provides an overview of and reference for government regulations. 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)
