Ashmore, M. Catherine; Pritz, Sandra G.
This teaching guide is intended for use in implementing the third level of a comprehensive entrepreneurship curriculum entitled: A Program for Acquiring Competence in Entrepreneurship (PACE). Designed for use with advanced secondary students, postsecondary students, and adults wanting training or retraining for direct application, the third level of PACE consists of 18 units with an emphasis on policies and strategies for managing your own business, skill building, planning in detail, and preparing for implementation. The units assume previous knowledge and experience in the area. A project entitled "Putting All the Parts Together" is presented that is designed to encourage students to apply the competencies gained at level 3 by completing a procedure book that can serve as a training manual and reference for future planning. The project is suggested for use by individual students or groups as a final entrepreneurship evaluation. Check sheets for each unit/module are provided to assist in writing out a business plan, and basic forms to be used in operating the business are included. The next section provides teaching outlines for each module/unit that contain module objectives, basic content detail, and teaching suggestions. The materials provided in the manual's next four sections include transparency masters, handouts, model activity responses, and model assessment responses. A listing of selected curriculum resources is found in the final section. (YLB)
