Entrepreneurship: A Career Alternative. Information Series No. 273.
Hanson, Garth A.
This paper, a resource for vocational and adult education teachers who teach entrepreneurship education, reviews selected literature on entrepreneurship published since 1970. It includes periodicals, monographs, books, and miscellaneous publications produced by the U.S. Small Business Administration and similar organizations. The literature reviewed is synthesized into guidelines for use by vocational educators responsible for teaching entrepreneurship skills. The paper organizes the synthesized literature into these five chapters: (1) characteristics of entrepreneurs, (2) industry selection factors, (3) getting started in an industry, (4) the entrepreneurial industry, and (5) learning how to be an industry entrepreneur. Each of the chapters begins with an introduction to the topic with some support from the literature. A list of suggested activities follows, and the chapter concludes with a brief summary. A bibliography of printed materials for and about entrepreneurs is included in the document. (KC)
