DEVELOPING THE OCCUPATIONAL BUSINESS EDUCATION PROGRAM IN THE SMALL HIGH SCHOOL. BUSINESS EDUCATION CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT SERIES.
AIKIN, BRENTON R.
SOME OF THE PROBLEMS INVOLVED IN BUSINESS EDUCATION IN THE SMALL SCHOOL WITH AN ENROLLMENT OF 350 OR LESS, ARE EXPLORED. SUGGESTIONS ARE BASED ON OBSERVATIONS OF PRACTICES IN SELECTED SMALL SCHOOLS, AN EXAMINATION OF THE LITERATURE IN THE FIELD, AND CONFERENCES WITH SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS, TEACHERS, AND BUSINESSMEN. GUIDELINES FOR DEVELOPING COURSES SUGGEST WAYS OF REDUCING THE HIGH TEACHER LOAD, INSURING ADEQUATE COURSE DEPTH FOR INITIAL EMPLOYMENT, AND ATTAINING COURSE FLEXIBILITY AND ADAPTABILITY. EACH ELEMENT OF THE COURSE OF STUDY IS ANALYZED AS TO CONTENT, POSSIBILITY OF COMBINATION WITH OTHERS, AND METHODS. THE ELEMENTS ARE COMBINED INTO THREE BUSINESS EDUCATION PROGRAMS ILLUSTRATING WAYS OF PROVIDING WELL-ROUNDED, ADEQUATE INSTRUCTION FOR GRADES 10, 11, AND 12--A STANDARD PROGRAM WITH AND WITHOUT SHORTHAND, AN ALTERNATE-YEAR-OFFERING METHOD WITH AND WITHOUT SHORTHAND, AND A SEMINAR METHOD. THE APPENDIX INCLUDES (1) AN ANALYSIS OF JOB ENTRY REQUIREMENTS SUCH AS KNOWLEDGE AND ABILITIES NEEDED, DUTIES, PERSONALITY TRAITS, AND SPEED REQUIREMENTS FOR THE STENOGRAPHER, CLERK-TYPISTS, AND GENERAL OFFICE CLERK, (2) ROOM LAYOUTS DESIGNED FOR THE SMALL SCHOOL, AND (3) A LIST OF BASIC INSTRUCTIONAL EQUIPMENT.
