Secretarial Practice for High Schools.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Bureau of Curriculum Development.
The handbook provides teachers with a guide to a course of vocational training designed to qualify high school stenographic majors for initial employment as stenographers or potential secretaries. The subject is taught by means of practical application under supervision and is meant to serve as a culmination of secretarial training. The course provides training in five basic areas: (1) building dictation and transcription skills, (2) building typewriting skill, (3) developing skill in language arts, (4) developing skills in the use of office machines, (5) improving human relations skills and personal qualities. Thirteen units of work are outlined, some broad ("The Secretarial Career"), some narrow ("Handling the Mail"), with teaching suggestions offered for each topic within the work units. A separate section on teaching procedures and techniques gives suggestions for equipment and classroom layout, organization and management, machine maintenance, and evaluation. The handbook's fourth section is a guide to such teaching aids as bulletin boards and audiovisual aids, and offers sample worksheets and checklists, while the appendix includes a bibliography, glossary, film catalog, and materials sources.
