Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This document contains standards for the academic content of the Wisconsin K-12 curriculum in the area of business. Developed by task forces of educators, parents, board of education members, and employers and employees, the standards cover content, performance, and proficiency areas. They are cross-referenced to the state standards for English language arts, mathematics, and social studies. The first part of the guide is an introduction that defines the academic standards, explains how and why they were developed, and suggests ways teachers can use the standards, relate them to all students, and apply them across the curriculum. It is followed by an overview of the business standards and the standards for the following topics: communications, information systems and technology, financial procedures, economics, entrepreneurship, marketing, international business, principles of management, principles of law, interpersonal and leadership skills, and career development. Standards for each topic are organized into the skills and knowledge students should be able to demonstrate by the end of grades 4, 8, and 12. (KC)
