LESSON PLAN BRIEF (LPB)
SECTION 1. THE TASK
An Accountant or Accountancy Teacher / Tutor, is sought, who can provide, or create, 15 lesson plans for 15 excellent one-hour college lessons covering the 15 topics of accounting listed in section 2.
For this project, we are happy to give the person full freedom to provide the format, content and style of the lessons in the way that they see is best. The deadline for completion of this task is [url removed, login to view], Sunday May 25 (GMT). The budget for this project is US$50.00. This project could be extremely easy for an accountant or accountancy teacher / tutor who already has a large database of lesson plans and lesson resources covering these topics.
As background, the lessons will be delivered to a small class of 17 year old English girls next week, who are about to sit their AS Accounting exams. The girls are quite a bit behind in their work (due to their teacher being absent for a long part of the year), so the lessons should be pitched at a basic level, with any content, questions and activities being very simple. The more simple, the better.
