Section 4 contains a twenty-page description of a plan for individualizing and systematizing an advanced typewriting course for adults, including a student questionnaire, pre-assessment inventory, and outlines for eight units of instruction, with each unit containing the purpose of the unit, unit objective and evaluation, unit content, and supplementary and enrichment resources.
