Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Curriculum Branch.
This curriculum guide is one of nine such guides developed for an Alberta high school business education program. Its content covers the main subject area or strand of basic business. Subject to the constraints outlined in the guide, the modules are to be formatted into three- or four-credit courses within each strand. Introductory materials include a business education program philosophy, a list of learning principles applied to business education, a list of program objectives, a schematic overview of a business education high school program, course sequences, guidelines for structuring business education courses, and a business education matrix. These materials specifically for basic business 20-30 follow: an introduction, objectives, and a flowchart of modules. These components are provided for each of the eight modules: purpose and a chart that correlates topics with learning tasks and teaching notes. Module topics are Canadian business, consumer credit, insurance, economic concepts, small business management I, management techniques, personal financial planning, and small business management II (simulation). The guide also contains guidelines for student evaluation, lists of basic and recommended learning resources, and a correlation of course content with learning resources. (YLB)
