Model/School Store Management Guide.
North Dakota State Board for Vocational Education, Bismarck.
This teacher-coordinator manual assists in planning, organizing, directing, and evaluating student learning experiences associated with either a model store, school store, or combination. (A model store in a marketing laboratory simulates marketing functions; the school store markets merchandise to fellow students, faculty, and/or the public.) Eleven pages of introductory materials present general learning objectives and overview Cycle I--Store Group Training. Cycle I emphasizes preparatory simulated learning experiences for all students and precedes individual department and/or individual job assignment and Cycles II (basic) and III (advanced)--Departmental Training--which emphasize school store application experiences. Training projects in Cycle I include orientation, departmental responsibilities, development of store organization chart, preparing job application form, preemployment job skills test, job interviewing, developing evaluation forms, and sales skills. Cycles II and III represent specific projects that are completed by the Management, Merchandising, Promotion, and Operations/Finance Departments. The self-contained projects/learning packages are organized according to a memo format. Memos identify subject of the activity/project, store assignment, and managers or employees involved. They include training references (summarized checklists, major learning principles, or store policies and procedures) to provide background information to complete the activity. (YLB)
