New SBE Instructional Units and Lesson Plans for Advisors

Aug 25, 2023

As an advisor, DECA provides you with a powerful array of tools and classroom resources that you can integrate into classroom instruction and help build the framework for your SBE's business plan.

Advisors can utilize DECAs searchable advisor resource center on our “This Is How We Do DECA” page to access hundreds of on-demand advisor professional development videos, role-plays and case studies, exams and templates in one searchable resource center.

School-based enterprise instructional units and lesson plans have recently been added to the advisor resource center. These instructional units correspond with the 10 instructional standards and performance indicators of the chapter certification program.

  • Distribution/Channel Management
  • Financial analysis
  • Human resources management
  • Market planning
  • Marketing-information management
  • Operations
  • Pricing
  • Product/Service Management
  • Promotion
  • Selling

Each standard includes a lesson plan (with key terms, an application activity, an assessment/follow-up activity and additional resources, if applicable) and an editable PowerPoint presentation (which covers each performance indicator and includes discussion questions).

You can filter the resources in the advisor resource center to view the school-based enterprise instructional units by clicking classroom resources under the category and school-based enterprises under the subcategory or searching for one of the 10 instructional standards.
