Abstract

The problem was a project in curriculum development and enrichment, involving finding and arranging appropriate community resources for use in common teaching units in general business. The purpose of the study was: (1) to use the units in general business as the curriculum framework for the study; (2) to seek appropriate community resources that could be used in relation to these units; and (3) to develop an instructional design combining the units in general business with appropriate community resources. The instruments employed in gathering data were: Survey of Teacher Use of Community Resources, Community Resources Inventory, Field Trip Plan Sheet, and Resource Persons Inventory. Interview-visitation, recorded observation, correspondence, and inventory methods were used to gather data. A pilot project was used for procedural try-out of the study.
