A Pilot Program to Provide Ownership Skills to Seniors in the Vocational Technical Schools and Other Educational Institutions. Year Three. Final Report.
Rooke, John T.
This report provides information about the 54-hour module in ownership and/or management of a small business, Mind Your Own Business, that was taught to all twelfth grade students at the Norwich Regional Vocational Technical School. A twelve-page abstract outlines the topics/ business principles studied, describes the program, and summarizes setting, funding, and program design. The introduction discusses the problem that led to development of the course--lack of student understanding of business skills--reviews pertinent literature, and lists 17 project objectives. In the next section entitled Summary are presented results of the pretests, unit tests, posttest, two-part student evaluation questionnaire, and class of 1980 graduate survey. These conclusions are reported: the course is a model for other vocational-technical schools, overall program rating was good, posttest scores were higher than pretest scores indicating learning, and students indicated a need for the program. The final section, Project Design, overviews activities, participants, methods, evaluation, time schedule, results, and dissemination. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the report, include a bibliography, tests, questionnaire, survey, test results, and sample materials. (YLB)
