Machine Transcription Syllabus.
Seeley, Rita; Fraser, Frank
The syllabus has been designed as a one-semester or one-year separate course or for use as an instructional module within certain other office education courses. In machine transcription, students learn to transcribe business communications from recordings and to apply a variety of related skills including typewriting, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, form, and arrangement. The curriculum committee sought to prepare a course incorporating these needs. Three levels of achievement have been identified for each topic, and the students should be encouraged to progress at their own rate with special emphasis on increasing typewriting speed. The desired objective in machine transcription is to produce corrected, mailable letters or other copy. To assist the teacher, the syllabus presents six content areas and course objectives for the three levels in each area. Suggestions for individualizing instruction and motivating the student are based on personal conferences. Teaching suggestions for each content area are presented and methods for evaluating student performance are proposed. The syllabus concludes with a chapter on suggestions for dictation. (AG)
