The guide includes the following components: (1) an employability skills profile; (2) recommended program patterns for business education courses; (3) rationale for the program; (4) evaluation methods; (5) time allotments; (6) goals and objectives; and (7) seven units of study. The units cover getting started, keyboarding skills development, special keys, numeric keypad, document editing, document formatting, and composition. Units consist of a goal, objectives, and teaching methods keyed to the objectives. A bibliography listing 35 texts and an address for business education materials completes the guide. (KC)
