Additional materials provide a description of the physical facility (floor plans, office sketches, and equipment and materials needed); teacher prerequisites; a rationale for establishing a simulation in an office practice class; an explanation of the simulation design for phases 2, 3, and 4; a detailed outline of files and materials needed to run the simulation; teacher's keys for phases 2, 3, and 4; suggested rush jobs for use in phase four of the BOP simulation; various materials to be used in interviewing for BOP positions; and a BOP self-evaluation and program evaluation sheet.
