New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Secondary Curriculum Development.
Secretarial Practice is a finishing course for persons taking a vocational stenographic curriculum sequence or a three-unit sequence in either stenography or machine transcription. The syllabus discusses in detail the course objectives (definition of terms, general objective, selected specific objectives, syllabus organization and human relations); administrative concerns (suggested scheduling patterns, major sequences and diploma requirements, prerequisites, and minimum equipment); modes of instruction (role playing, case studies, contracts, demonstrations, independent study, programmed learning, brainstorming, operation breakdown, flow charting, and simulation); and classroom management (pretesting, posttesting, dictation and transcription, building pupil schedules, student reference notebook and communication skills). The course has been divided into 12 major modules: advanced typewriting, adding and calculating machines, machine transcription, duplicating machines, filing and records management, data processing, communications, human relations, stenographic skill development, related secretarial office procedures, office simulation and the in-basket technique, and job seeking and behavior on the job. Each of these modules contains an introduction to the topic, student behavioral objectives in terms of performance goals, teaching suggestions, and content topics organized into three levels.
