Selden, William H., Jr.
The publication is designed to serve as a guide for those responsible for business education in Pennsylvania, emphasizing curriculum planning and the development of course guidelines. Chapter one deals with planning the business education program within the framework of the principles of curriculum construction. Program implementation at the secondary level is the primary concern of chapter two and course offerings are suggested for accounting, clerical, and stenographic-clerical curriculums. Suggested course offerings and administrative guidelines are also offered for specialized programs, adult education programs, area school curriculums and courses, college preparatory business curriculums, cooperative business education, and mini courses. Chapter three offers course descriptions and lists behavioral objectives for the following courses: accounting, business economics, business English, business law, business mathematics, business organization and management, clerical practice, introduction to data processing, general business, office practice, principles of selling, recordkeeping, shorthand, and typewriting. Administration and supervision are topics discussed in the final chapter, as well as the following considerations necessary to develop a comprehensive business education program: developing interest in career education, student involvement in clerical and secretarial services for the school and community, credit requirements, data processing, facilities and equipment, reporting enrollment, trends, and vocational guidance.
