Resources for Entrepreneurship Education.
Greenwood, Kathryn; And Others
This resource notebook is intended to assist vocational educators and minority business development center representatives working at the secondary, postsecondary, and adult levels in developing, improving, and expanding entrepreneurial training programs by developing program models, training strategies, and bibliographies of resource materials. Addressed in the individual sections of the guide are the following topics: what entrepreneurship is and why it is important, where entrepreneurship education fits in, how instructors go about providing entrepreneurship education, whether minority entrepreneurs have special needs, how program providers assess entrepreneurship education programs, and where program providers can get help in developing and delivering entrepreneurship education programs. Appendixes, which compose more than half of the guide, include a selected annotated bibliography; model training program descriptions; an overview of minority business development centers and their role in enterprise development; excerpts from an entrepreneurship education program planning guide; directories of assistance agencies; a flow chart for planning and implementing a new venture; a list of characteristics of entrepreneurs; entrepreneur, success, and career quotients developed by the National Research Center for University and College Admissions; and guidelines for organizing to develop program and collaborative networks.
