This annual serial issue contains six papers dealing with business education and training. "A Direction for Focusing Business Curricula" (Sharon Lund O'Neil) discusses the standards against which business curricula of the future must be measured. The importance of business communication in general education programs is emphasized in "The Nature of Business Communication: The Integration of Theory and Practice" (Iris I. Varner, Paula J. Pomerenke). "Perceived Importance of High School Business Classes as Preparation for College" (Linda Henson Wiggs, Simin Cwick) reports a study of college students' perceptions regarding the importance of high school business courses as preparation for college. In "Creating Computer-Based Presentations: A Skill for Today's Workplace" (Heidi R. Perreault), the capabilities and use of presentation software packages are explained. "The Spacing Effect: What Is It? And How Can It Impact on Your Business Curriculum?" (Dennis J. LaBonty) summarizes research on the spacing of instruction over several days rather than presenting it in a single day. Evidence that professional development activities are needed to make teaching more relevant to industry-based skill standards is provided in "Incorporating Industry-Based Skill Standards into High School Secretarial and Administrative/Information Services Programs: Teacher Professional Development Activities" (Phyllis C. Bunn). (MN)
