A Guide for Planning Facilities for Occupational Preparation Programs in Business and Office Occupations. Interim Report. Research 26.
The guide was developed as a facility planning tool for use by business education instructors, state supervisors, university school planners, and local school officials. It lists a series of questions about the educational program to be offered, the answers to which bear directly on the numbers and kind of instructional areas needed in the contemplated facilities. After program decisions are recorded the guide provides for the description of instructional areas needed to meet the program requirements. Much of the material is presented in a checklist format which allows for consideration of alternatives in facility planning. Other guides in this series are available for home economics (ED 022 924), data processing (ED 023 927), and machine trades (ED 023 926). Discussed are the major purpose, the underlying assumptions, and the guiding principles which were utilized in the preparation of the guide; the instructional program as to program features, objectives and kinds of programs which will be organized to implement them; and the distinct types of instructional areas to be provided. Also included is an annotated bibliography of reference sources which offer more detailed treatment of the various stages of facility planning. (MM)
