Wingfield, Karen L.; And Others
This guide is intended to help teachers and vocational administrators incorporate word processing into existing office occupations education programs on both the secondary and postsecondary levels. Following an introduction (section 1) covering the need for word processing instruction, the guide contains eight additional sections. Outlining updated curriculum content for high school and postsecondary office occupations education programs, sections 2 and 3 include recommended courses, course descriptions, teaching methods, instructional materials, and suggested curriculum changes. In sections 4 and 5, advice is given on choosing word processing equipment and attending word processing equipment demonstration. Section 6 presents resources, including lists of professional associations, periodicals, books and pamphlets, and curriculum resources, while section 7 covers word processing equipment, service, and suppliers. A glossary and an evaluation sheet complete the curriculum guide. (KC)
