Office Occupations. Clerical and Secretarial Clusters. Occupational Cluster Guide.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
This guide is intended to help vocational teachers design and implement a cluster program in office occupations (clerical and secretarial, including word processing). The guide suggests teaching ideas for a program aimed at high school students, as well as those wishing to enter community college, university, or apprenticeship programs. To develop this curriculum guide, key occupations were identified, common core competencies for the clerical and secretarial cluster areas were determined, and the appropriate activities and resources were selected. The guide contains three sections. The first section describes the office occupations cluster organization and implementation, including goal-based planning, schedules, suggested courses, and program operation and management. The second section explains the instructional emphasis area, including suggested program goals and topics to be covered. A curriculum analysis matrix is provided. The final section of the guide covers student assessment. Appendixes to the guide include the following: Oregon manpower data; key occupation job descriptions; facilities, equipment, and supplies; and an office occupations skills record. (KC)
