Teaching Shorthand. Delta Pi Epsilon Rapid Reader No. 4.
Gallion, Leona M.
This guide provides secondary business teachers with ideas for teaching shorthand and evaluating students. Content is presented in six sections. The first section lists seven behavioral objectives for shorthand instruction. Section 2 presents strategies (suggestions) for handling the various components of shorthand instruction and includes discussions of organizing the class, presenting theory, building reading skill, introducing writing, developing dictation-taking ability, introducing transcription, developing transcription ability, and assigning homework. In discussing selection of instructional materials, section 3 focuses on vocabulary-controlled materials, dictation materials, programmed materials, and workbooks. Section 4 considers using audiovisual aids--dictation tapes and transparencies--as alternatives for shorthand instruction. Section 5 discusses the following areas and tests used for evaluation of student progress: reading, brief/speed form tests, theory tests, dictation tests, and transcription tests. A sample evaluation plan is presented. The last section lists references. An appendix contains a listing of supplementary materials, including speed-building tapes, dictation and test materials, bulletin boards and games, and miscellaneous. (YLB)
