This task-simulation learning module on word processing for secondary and postsecondary teachers and students, the first in a series of eleven task and in-basket simulations, was designed for individualized instruction in office occupations courses, such as introductory business and typewriting. (Each of the modules in the set is marked A, B, or C, representing level of difficulty from, respectively, easy to difficult.) The module is divided into two parts. The first, developed for teacher use, includes the following: teacher instructions; definitions of task and in-basket simulations; objectives (learning tasks); prior student experiences; necessary equipment, supplies, and resources; completion time; method of evaluation; instructions for four simulation tasks; definitions of terminology; pre-test with answer key; answer keys for four learning tasks; and worksheets. The second part, developed for student use, includes the following: objectives (learning tasks); prior student experiences; necessary equipment, supplies, and resources; description of simulation situation; instructions for four learning tasks; and worksheets. (This module was developed to supplement performance objective 74 of the V-TECS [Vocational-Technical Education Consortium of States] Secretarial Catalog. Some related office occupations instructional materials are available in ERIC--see note.) (EM)
