Small Business Management Volume III: Curriculum. An Adult Education Program.
Persons, Edgar A.; Swanson, Gordon I.
The small business management adult education program outlined in this curriculum guide is designed to help small business entrepreneurs solve their business management problems and attain the goals they have established for their businesses and their families. (An instructor's manual and practice problems are in separate volumes.) The 3-year curriculum includes individual at-the-business instruction as an integral part of the teaching plan. The first year deals with the reasons for keeping records, what records to keep, and how to keep them easily and accurately. The second year covers the study and interpretation of the small business analysis. The third year utilizes the records and analyses of the previous years to make plans for future changes in the business, with more emphasis placed on work with individual families at their business and home and less on group instruction. Following an introductory section, the units of instruction (12 to 14 for each year) are presented. Each unit contains the following parts: Student objectives, transition of units (unifying themes), lesson (including key questions and teaching strategies), unit summary, at-the-business instruction, resources and equipment needed, list of references, and appendixes containing student handouts, worksheets, and/or transparency masters. (This guide is one of four volumes produced by the project entitled, "Development, Demonstration, and Evaluation of Management Education Programs for Small Business Entrepreneurs, Including Minorities.")
