Language Arts, Business Communication, and Career Planning: A Curriculum Guide.
National Council of Negro Women, New York, NY.
The learning program described is primarily for adults working at entry-level clerical jobs who do not have the language arts, problem solving, or interpersonal skills they need for advancement. The program is suitable for adult continuing education courses, inservice training by business, and educational advancement courses sponsored by community organizations. Information on the development, purposes, implementation, content, and organization of the program is included. An outline chart presents the major clerical tasks divided into entry-level and intermediate level, together with skills and knowledge needed to perform them. This data serves as the framework for developing the curriculum. Three sections of the guide contain goals, learning objectives, performance objectives, learning activities, and instructional materials for the following: the task approach (establishes the relationship between task analysis, job competency, and educational advancement), areas of academic knowledge (problem solving, listening and speaking, writing, reading/vocabulary), and career and education guidance (experimental section outlining a series of career development workshops). The final section, task-based learning materials, contains teacher, tutor, and student materials for 13 sequenced clerical tasks. A 15-item bibliography concludes the guide. (Author/MS)
