Designed for use in teaching secondary-level word processing courses, this teaching guide is divided into three major sections. Among the topics presented in the introductory section are the history of word processing, components of word processing, five phases of word processing, the future of word processing and information systems, and job descriptions of word processing personnel. The second section of the guide provides a course outline. The third section comprises the bulk of the document and is divided into clusters of word processing competencies. Seven clusters are presented: (1) human relations in the modern office; (2) history, concepts, and job opportunities; (3) communications skills; (4) equipment proficiency; (5) reprographics, records management, and dissemination; (6) general clerical skills, and (7) enrichment activities. Each cluster contains learning activities intended to serve as a guide to the teacher in developing and selecting materials. Appended material includes a glossary, word processing forms, and a bibliography. (LRA)
