Implications of Research for Teaching Typewriting: Second Edition. Research Bulletin No. 4.
West, Leonard J.
The monograph updates the original 1962 publication and, like it, bases its recommendations for typewriting instruction on what the author considers to be reputable research evidence of two kinds: classroom and other investigations directly concerned with typewriting; and fundamental principles for the acquisition of skill arising from the findings of the experimental psychology of learning over three-quarters of a century. A general statement on teaching typewriting is followed by sections covering: how stroking skill is acquired; developing stroking technique; learning the keyboard; developing stroking skill; media and other teacher-free devices and programs; a miscellany of other instructional considerations; the role of stroking skill in production typing skill, development of production skills; and performance standards and proficiency testing. The monograph concludes with an afterword and references. (Author/NH)
