This new coursebook on Core Commercial Concepts makes key concepts from the Uniform Commercial Code clear and understandable, and is presented in a format that encourages students to take the course and teachers to teach it. The book is designed for coverage in a 2 or 3-hour survey course, and covers the most significant provisions of Uniform Commercial Code Article 2 (Sales), Article 9 (Secured Transactions), and Articles 3 and 4 (Payment Systems). The start of each chapter highlights key learning objectives to allow students to fully master the material. Salient provisions of the Code have been selected and excerpted, along with cogent textual explanations and examples that bring the provisions to life, and detailed problems that test the students' understanding and provide the starting point for class discussion. The text is designed to give a high-level overview of critical concepts from the Uniform Commercial Code, without requiring students to take several more specialized courses.

Diese Arbeit entstand vor dem Hintergrund der gesellschaftlichen und wirtschaftlichen Veränderungen in China seit den 90er Jahren des 20. Jhds und den damit einhergehenden Reformen im Bildungssystem. Insbesondere für die traditionell wenig angesehene Berufsbildung erfolgte politisch eine völlige Neubewertung, die viele Bemühungen ausgelöst hat, Schule und Unterricht so zu modernisieren, dass den Betrieben unter marktwirtschaftlichen Bedingungen in beruflichen Domainen qualifizierte Jugendliche zur Verfügung stehen und dass sich den Jugendlichen selbst Chancen auf dem Arbeitsmarkt bieten. Eine der diskutierten Reformlinien rückt ein didaktisches Konzept in den Vordergrund, dem ein konstruktivistisches Lernverständnis unterlegt ist und Schüler befähigen will, Zusammenhänge in ausgewählten Tätigkeitsfeldern zu erkennen und die in den Wissenschaften zu ihrer Modellierung verwendeten Konstrukte in ihrer Machart und Leistungsfähigkeit einzuschätzen. Überwunden werden soll in allen Reformansätzen das für das traditionelle Bildungssystem typische memorierende und reproduzierende Lernen. Andere Untersuchungen aber auch eigene Voruntersuchungen zeigen, dass ein Gelingen des intendierten didaktischen Wechsels stark davon abhängt, ob den Lehrkräften Lehrmittel zur Verfügung stehen, die ein verstehendes Lernen unterstützen und dafür Vorbilder liefern. Aus diesem Grunde werden in der Arbeit zahlreiche neuere Schulbuchproduktionen im kaufmännischen Bereich untersucht. Dabei wird auch der Vielfalt der Publikationswege und der Heterogenität im Verlagswesen Rechnung getragen. Für die qualitative Untersuchung werden vier unterschiedliche Gegenstandsbereiche festgelegt, die für wirtschaftsberufliche Curricula zentral sind, und jeweils auf ein typisches inhaltliches Beispiel fokussiert. Für die ausgewählten Gegenstandsbereiche – ökonomisch zentrale Konzepte/ Begriffe, ideale ökonomische Modelle, rechtliche Normen, prozedurales Wissen – werden zunächst jeweils mit Rückgriffen auf kognitive, lerntheoretische, methodologische und dogmengeschichtliche Theorien didaktische Möglichkeiten analysiert, eine verstehende Aneignung fachlicher Inhalte und Denkstile sowie beruflicher Kompetenzen begründet zu begünstigen. Daraus werden jeweils Gesichtspunkte gewonnen, die als Maßstab zur qualitativen Analyse der Schulbuchtexte herangezogen werden. Die Untersuchung der Texte zeigt quer durch die verschiedenen Gegenstandsbereiche und Textbeispiele, dass die Darstellungen durchgängig dem traditionellen Muster klassifikatorischer Informationsorganisation verhaftet bleiben, die eher synoptischen Gestaltungsinteressen folgt und Fragen des Lernens und der Kompetenzaneignung vernachlässigt. Damit bleiben die Schulbuchproduktionen, die vordergründig aktuelle und disziplinär moderne Themen aufgreifen, in ihrer Machart bislang weiter der Tradition verhaftet, memorierendes Lernen einzufordern, was den Zielen der Berufsbildungsreform völlig widerspricht. Das ist ein für den Reformprozess wesentlicher Befund, da den Schulbüchern dabei eine zentrale Rolle zukommt. Aus den Befunden werden Empfehlungen für die wesentlichen an der Lehrerausbildung beteiligten Institutionen abgeleitet.

This book reflects the authors' belief that to teach only the rules would give students a false sense and static understanding of what commercial law is all about and what makes it exciting. This book is also an effective platform for a more detailed approach to the rules of commercial law. Problems could be easily supplemented text to provide students with a more technical understanding of these rules. The authors emphasize some of the rules because those rules help students understand the basic concepts. Most of the study deals with the UCC, specifically Articles 9, 3, 4, and 5.

With age-appropriate, inquiry-centered curriculum materials and sound teaching practices, middle school science can capture the interest and energy of adolescent students and expand their understanding of the world around them. Resources for Teaching Middle School Science, developed by the National Science Resources Center (NSRC), is a valuable tool for identifying and selecting effective science curriculum materials that will engage students in grades 6 through 8. The volume describes more than 400 curriculum titles that are aligned with the National Science Education Standards. This completely new guide follows on the success of Resources for Teaching Elementary School Science, the first in the NSRC series of annotated guides to hands-on, inquiry-centered curriculum materials and other resources for science teachers. The curriculum materials in the new guide are grouped in five chapters by scientific area--Physical Science, Life Science, Environmental Science, Earth and Space Science, and Multidisciplinary and Applied Science. They are also grouped by type--core materials, supplementary units, and science activity books. Each annotation of curriculum material includes a recommended grade level, a description of the activities involved and of what students can be expected to learn, a list of accompanying materials, a reading level, and ordering information. The curriculum materials included in this book were selected by panels of teachers and scientists using evaluation criteria developed for the guide. The criteria reflect and incorporate goals and principles of the National Science Education Standards. The annotations designate the specific content standards on which these curriculum pieces focus. In addition to the curriculum chapters, the guide contains six chapters of diverse resources that are directly relevant to middle school science. Among these is a chapter on educational software and multimedia programs, chapters on books about science and teaching, directories and guides to science trade books, and periodicals for teachers and students. Another section features institutional resources. One chapter lists about 600 science centers, museums, and zoos where teachers can take middle school students for interactive science experiences. Another chapter describes nearly 140 professional associations and U.S. government agencies that offer resources and assistance. Authoritative, extensive, and thoroughly indexed--and the only guide of its kind--Resources for Teaching Middle School Science will be the most used book on the shelf for science teachers, school administrators, teacher trainers, science curriculum specialists, advocates of hands-on science teaching, and concerned parents.
