A Guide for Infusing Entrepreneurship Awareness into Vocational Education.
Eastern Michigan Univ., Ypsilanti.
This curriculum guide for infusing entrepreneurship education into the vocational education curriculum is organized in seven sections. The first two sections point out the need for awareness of entrepreneurship in vocational education and suggest some approaches to infusing entrepreneurship awareness. The third section of the guide, which makes up most of its content, describes eight models for infusing entrepreneurship awareness. Lesson plans--containing an objective, materials list, teacher behaviors, and student activities--are included for the models. The models are on the following topics: future entrepreneurs conference, entrepreneurship awareness on a tight schedule, brainstorming a business, orientation to entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship opportunity awareness, overview of entrepreneurship, open for business, and risks and rewards. Content notes, basic information needed for the models, is provided in the fourth section of the guide, followed by a section listing additional ideas for infusing entrepreneurship awareness. A listing of commercial materials for infusing entrepreneurship is followed by an annotated bibliography containing 25 references. (KC)
