Mississippi Business and Technology Framework, 2004
Mississippi Department of Education
The primary purpose of the 2004 Mississippi Business and Technology Framework is to promote business and economic literacy, both successful domestic and international functioning, diverse practice of interpersonal, teamwork, and leadership skills, technology as a tool for managing information, and lifelong learning skills that foster flexible career paths and confidence in adapting to a workplace that demands constant retooling. Furthermore, the 2004 Mississippi Business and Technology Framework provides teachers with a tool to help instruct students with the essential skills of finding, understanding, processing, and integrating information that helps them solve a variety of problems. In addition, students must possess a basic knowledge of the various business and technology content areas--accounting, business law, career development, communication, computation, economics and personal finance, entrepreneurship, information technology, international business, management, and marketing, as well as other business and technology areas--and how they interrelate. The 2004 Mississippi Business and Technology Framework is the basis for district curriculum development for K-12 business and technology teachers. The curriculum provides an outline of what students should learn and do in business and technology classrooms. The curriculum replaces the previous business and technology curriculum developed in 2000. A glossary is included.
