This task-simulation learning module on introduction to business for secondary and postsecondary teachers and students, the second in a series of eleven task and in-basket simulations, was designed to provide individualized instruction in office occupations courses, such as introductory business and typewriting. (Each of the modules in the set is designated 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; 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; and instructions for four learning tasks. (This module was developed around performance objectives 39, 42, 53, and 54 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)
