  • Focuses on the importance of entrepreneurship a life skill for individual social progress
  • Stresses uniquely the need to cultivate entrepreneurial thinking from childhood and to integrate entrepreneurship education across the school curriculum
  • Gives methodological analysis and case studies on how entrepreneurship education needs to be work-centred
  • Provides a ready-to-use experimental curriculum for practitioners and researchers interested in advancing entrepreneurship education
This book presents an epistemological framework for integrating entrepreneurship education across the general school curriculum. It also explores how such education can be inclusive and integral to the objective, content, pedagogy and assessment practices for different stages of school education in general and the elementary stage in particular. It takes on board the development of entrepreneurial proficiencies through the use of narratives, arts and craft, work and life skills and home-community partnership. The precise aims of the book are to: (a) conceptualize entrepreneurship education in different stages of school education as an objective, an approach and as a specific subject; (b) promote the culture of entrepreneurship in the school system; (c) establish a methodology within which effective teaching-learning can be developed with respect to the extent to which entrepreneurial learning is considered to be an extracurricular activity or as an intrinsic part of school education; (d) integrate entrepreneurship education at the elementary stage, and its progression further on; and (e) identify behavioural outcomes validating entrepreneurship development in school education.
