The following planning guide sheets were developed for each of the performance indicators in the Marketing Principles course guide. Each guide sheet identifies a Knowledge and Skill Statement (standard), a Performance Element (topic), a Performance Indicator, a Curriculum Planning Level, SCANS crosswalk, 21st Century Skills crosswalk, Objectives, a Sample Activity, and a listing of resources. The LAPs and presentation software packages identified in the resource listing can be purchased separately from MBAResearch to support instruction.
A sample activity is provided for each performance indicator. These activities can be used to reinforce concepts, practice skills, extend knowledge, and/or assess student performance. Considerations made in developing the activities are as follows:
The activities should promote critical thinking, decision-making, and teamwork.
A variety of activities should be developed to appeal to different learning and teaching styles and to maintain student interest.
The activities should reflect the intent of the performance indicators; e.g., concept-oriented activities should be developed for concept-oriented performance indicators.
The activities should enable students to integrate and apply academic content.
The activities should encourage the use of technology.
The activities should be viewed as examples that can be used for instructional assistance. They should not be considered mandatory or all inclusive.
The activities should be developed from the student’s point of view; i.e., the activities are for a student to complete, rather than instructional directions for a teacher to implement.
