Clow, John E.; And Others
Designed for high school teachers of economics, social studies, and business education, this teaching package provides materials for a course that combines study of basic economic concepts with an understanding of entrepreneurship. The teacher resource manual consists of three parts. Part 1 is an overview of the relationship between economics and entrepreneurship education. Part 2 contains 17 lessons. Topics include: entrepreneurs; characteristics of entrepreneurs; human capital; scarcity; economic systems; markets; entrepreneurial innovation; interdependence of entrepreneurial activities; demand; supply; market equilibrium; profits; business organization; borrowing; competitive markets; demand for labor; and government intervention. Contents of each lesson include: time required; concepts; instructional objectives; rationale; required materials; vocabulary (terms with definitions); procedures (suggestions for adapting activities for students of different ability levels); and evaluation (tests or activities to assess students' understanding). Reduced-print pages of student activities follow each lesson. Part 3 describes instructional practices that foster entrepreneurial behavior on the part of students. A complete set of blackline masters for student activities completes the package. (YLB)
