Entrepreneurship in Voc Ed: A Guide for Program Planning. Leadership Training Series No. 62.
Davis, Edward L.; Zelinko, Margaret A.
This planning guide is intended to assist program planners and curriculum developers in selecting entrepreneurship materials that are appropriate for students at the secondary, postsecondary, or adult levels. The guide suggests the following five essential steps necessary for developing training programs: assessing the status of the situation, defining the problem, selecting a solution, implementing the solution, and monitoring the solution. In order to accomplish these tasks, an action planning process is suggested for use in examining the existing available curriculum resources. The following worksheets are included for use by program planners: (1) a guide to designing entrepreneurship training, (2) a guide to assessing curriculum priorities, and (3) a guide to implementing entrepreneurship training. Eight curriculum resources are explored in depth. For each of these resources previously developed under federal and state funds, an abstract has been prepared that includes the source of the product, the materials available, level and scope of the resources, format, special features, and instructional units. In addition, items are included in order to illustrate a typical sample of what is to be found in the resources. The following four charts summarizing the resources are useful in completing the worksheets: background information, selected features, subject matter, and teacher and student materials. Finally, several additional curriculum resources, additional references, and a list of relevant organizations are included. (KC)
