Learning, Teaching, and Evaluating Century 21 Shorthand.
Dresselhaus, Patricia A.
This paper describes and evaluates the implementation of a two-semester course in Century 21 shorthand by an experienced business education instructor. Student characteristics, course organization, learning activities, and difficulties encountered by both students and the instructor are described for each course. Detailed evaluations of the characteristics of the Century 21 symbol system, the student texts (Collegiate Series), and the Teacher's Manual are provided for both learning and teaching. Advantages and disadvantages are weighed in comparison to the Gregg systems. Suggestions for other instructors in utilizing and adapting the lesson sequence and instructional materials are made, and revisions are suggested for the authors of the Century 21 texts. It is concluded that Century 21 has a number of weaknesses, and that, overall, it is no better than other systems. (JDS)
