The 13 units in this curriculum guide are intended to aid business teachers in Louisiana high schools to prepare students to obtain entry-level employment in word-processing occupations. The first nine units cover the following topics: basic concepts of word processing, career opportunities, human relations skills, clerical skills, communication skills, equipment-related skills, machine dictation and transcription, proofreading and editing, and records management and reprographics. Four additional units include objectives and activities that will provide students with an opportunity to learn to operate equipment and to develop a marketable skill in producing various documents with word processing equipment. Each unit contains an introduction to the subject matter, competencies, general performance objectives, specific performance objectives and mastery criteria, suggested interest approaches for the teacher to use, methodology, a unit outline, specific performance objectives and learning activities, and a unit test with an answer key. Transparency masters, student materials, suggested supplementary materials, and suggested resources are included in most of the units. (KC)
