Automated Office 40S. Interim Guide.
Manitoba Dept. of Education and Training, Winnipeg.
This curriculum guide was developed for a full-credit course for students who are pursuing business and office work immediately after graduation from high schools in Manitoba and for students planning postsecondary study in this field. The course builds on and reinforces the concepts, skills, and knowledge mastered in the business curriculum. In this course, students apply what they have learned in a simulated office setting. Students develop competency using computers in an electronic office environment, and they use electronic applications such as electronic communications, computerized information management, desktop publishing, reprographics, and machine transcription. 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 these topics: introduction, electronic communications, information management, desktop publishing, reprographics and machine transcription, simulation or office practicum, and keypunch competency for job entry. Units consist of a goal, objectives, and teaching methods keyed to the objectives. A bibliography listing 5 texts and 28 resource materials and sources completes the guide. (KC)
