This curriculum guide was developed for a one-credit course for students in high schools in Manitoba. The course is designed to help students who wish to improve their keyboarding skills to acquire proficiency in using a high-end word processing package, whether for personal or vocational competence. This guide is for the introductory course in a series of two that develop word processing proficiency. 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) five units of study. The units cover these topics: getting started, keyboarding skills development, introductory features, formatting, and other features. Units consist of a goal, objectives, and teaching methods keyed to the objectives. A bibliography listing 7 texts, 10 guides to WordPerfect, 5 guides to Microsoft Word, and 1 guide to Commodore computers, and a list of 9 resources and sources for materials completes the guide. (KC)
