Supplementary Teaching Materials for Business Courses.
Boulden, Alfred W., Ed.
This teaching guide for business education contains supplementary instructional materials for the subjects of accounting, business English, business mathematics, career education, consumer education, data processing, and office procedures. The units differ in format and in types of learning activities presented. The learning activity package for accounting is a lesson on calculating depreciation by the straight line method. Business English is represented by a programed unit on similar word drills intended for use in a business English or transcription class and a self-instructional unit in punctuation practice with commas. A programed unit in business mathematics provides the student with a 1-week introduction to calculating commission. A career resource unit, developed for use in a second-year typing course, consists of exercises designed to increase student self-awareness. The resource unit in consumer education provides information and activities to help the student identify consumer fraud. Digital computers and flowcharting are the subjects of the data processing unit, and the office procedures lessons consist of two case studies, an integrated exercise for clerk typist, a filing exercise, and a dramatization related to the occupation of receptionist.
