Abstract

INTRODUCTION Teachers of business law in high schools, whether the law course be of one or two semesters duration, have been faced with several problems. One problem is to combat the prospective business law student's fear that the law course is an extremely difficult one. This fear, unfortunately, is sometimes fostered by the course description contained in the school handbook used by teachers for counselling the students. Another problem is that of "which teaching approach should I use?" Too often the teacher uses methods based on adult approaches to thinking, when in reality he should teach from the standpoint of student pursuits. For the teacher, the focus of learning should be on the student of high school age. A partial answer to both of those problems is the motivational device. Many such devices are described in the pages that follow.
