Be Your Own Boss (BYOB). Curriculum and Teacher's Implementation Guidelines.
Miranda, Lourdes; And Others
This package of materials contains a curriculum to provide young men and women with the necessary information to identify entrepreneurship as a career option. Another purpose is to overcome stereotypic attitudes about the equitable participation of women in the workplace. The curriculum is organized into five modules of one or two lessons each for a total of eight lessons. Each module is presented with a summary, suggested approach, goals, instructional objectives, and a conceptual overview. Detailed lesson plans for each day contain a summary of activities, implementation guidelines by classroom activity (including purpose, process, and procedure), and a summary of materials needed. For each lesson, other materials required are also provided, including pretest with answer key, activity answer keys, worksheet answer keys, posttest with answer key, and student handouts (worksheets, information sheets, activity sheets, exercises, glossaries, and examples). Module topics are orientation to entrepreneurship, a decision-making strategy, business operations and four kinds of ventures, successful models in entrepreneurship, and the game of Ventures. Appendixes include computer games for expanding the curriculum and an extensive bibliography. (YLB)
