Entrepreneurship as a Career Choice.
Ashmore, M. Catherine; And Others
This curriculum guide is designed to provide some basic materials to assist in developing an introductory approach to entrepreneurship as a career option. Chapter 1 presents an overview of entrepreneurship education and possible teaching strategies, including a topical outline, resource suggestions, detailed descriptions of available curriculum materials, and a list of ideas that are helpful in planning infusion of entrepreneurship education into a vocational curriculum. Chapters 2 through 5 provide learning activities designed as handouts for easy duplication in the classroom. They provide a variety of learning experiences related to becoming an entrepreneur in these areas: Can I be an entrepreneur?, What experiences have I had?, What type of business could I start?, and How can I prepare to be my own boss? Chapter 6 (more than half of the document) contains the stories of 50 young vocational education graduates who started a business of their own. They are grouped to correspond to the four areas of chapters 2-5. Each case study provides name of entrepreneur; business name, address, and phone; type of business; a narrative description; and case study questions and answers. (YLB)
