The following PowerPoint presentations are intended to be used in a group setting where highlights of the lessons can be offered. The PowerPoint materials and assessment tools were written for understanding at a basic or beginning business level.
Extension educators are encouraged to adapt and modify the information to better meet the needs of their rural business clientele. Local business Web sites can supplement Web site examples offered in the lessons.
The educator’s training guide below offers plans for using the curriculum to offer both a one-hour and a three-hour training session. Length of session might be determined by size of audience and accessibility to an electronic classroom with Internet access. If such a classroom is available, the educator can use a combination of illustrated lecture and hands-on approach to learning.
