This task-simulation learning module on board meeting preparation for secondary and postsecondary teachers and students, the fourth 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; pre-test with answer key; and answer keys for three learning tasks. 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 three learning tasks; and worksheets. (This module was developed around performance objective 77 of the V-TECS [Vocational-Technical Education Consortium of States] Secretarial Catalog. Some other related office occupations instructional materials are available in ERIC--see note.) (EM)
