Cliatt, Katherine H.
This in-basket-simulation learning module on the activities of an administrative secretary in the office of the State Treasurer for secondary and postsecondary teachers and students, the last 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 (in-basket tasks to prioritize); prior student experiences; necessary supplies and resources; completion time; method of evaluation; definitions of terminology; answer key; and answer sheet. The second part, developed for student use, includes the following: objectives (in-basket tasks to prioritize); prior student experiences; necessary supplies and resources; description of simulation situation; instructions; and in-basket items to prioritize. (The module was developed around performance objectives 4 and 11 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)
