Northwestern State Univ., Natchitoches, LA.
This curriculum guide describes courses included in business education programs in Louisiana high schools in terms of competencies that, when achieved, will enable the student to obtain employment. Five courses are described in the guide: Typewriting I and II, Shorthand I and II, and Clerical Office Practice. For each course, general performance objectives are given; the courses are further subdivided into phases and units with specific performance objectives and mastery criteria (e.g., "use good keystroking technique, space-bar technique, with a minimum of looking at fingers, and with quick carriage or carrier return, with an average of 1.6 on these techniques as observed and evaluated by the teacher"). Learning activities are suggested for each unit. In addition lists of resources for each course are provided, including suggested reading, state approved textbooks, supplementary materials, kits, and audiovisual materials. A bibliography is given for some of the courses. (KC)
