Course/Program Description

Accounting II is a half-year course, meeting from 1 term, 90 minutes every other day, on the
Block Schedule. This course covers Chapters 9-16, which covers a corporation and includes the
Global Imports and Electro Simulations. It is taught at the Junior or Senior year of high school.
Students must earn at least a “B” average to be considered for an articulation agreement with a
technical institution. Accounting I is a prerequisite for Accounting II.

        This program provides complete coverage of a merchandising business organized as a
corporation. This type of business is presented in a complete accounting cycle covering
analyzing transactions, journalizing, posting, petty cash, financial statements, and adjusting and
closing entries. Both manual and computerized applications are used throughout the course.
Learning will progress from the simple to the complex.

          Accounting instruction can make significant contributions to the education of students
who will pursue business careers after graduation. All students, regardless of the profession they
choose, can benefit from accounting instruction since it is an integral part of every business
institution and organization.

Laptop and Internet Procedures
Computers will be used every chapter this class. We will be doing 2 problems a chapter using
the Automated Accounting program. You will save the problems under your name in the (F) drive
and you will be asked to print some problems.

I will give you time at the beginning and end of class to check your e-mail. If you are all caught
up with your assignments, you may use your laptop for other purposes. If you abuse your
privileges, the laptop will be taken during class.

The school’s laptop and Internet policies will be strictly enforced.

Homework Procedures
You will be given time to complete all of your assignments during class. If you do not finish an
assignment during the time given to you, then it is your responsibility to do so either during
Spartan Time or at home.

Assessment Plan

Student assessment will be based on points/straight percentage according to the school grading
scale. Most credit comes from tests because we work together while we’re learning concepts.
