Arizona Business Occupations, Competency-Based Curriculum Guide.
Jalowsky, Toby D.; And Others
This competency-based curriculum guide to business occupations was designed to improve the articulation in business education programs among high schools, between high schools and postsecondary institutions, and between schools and the business community in Arizona. The teaching units are to be used to develop skills in areas identified by employers as necessary for entry-level positions. The curriculum guide contains 21 modules of instruction, grouped under the three general career clusters of accounting/data processing, administrative support/clerical-secretarial, and pre-professional/managerial. Subjects covered in the modules are accounting; applying for a job; business law; business math/machines; business organization/management; cooperative office education; communication arts; data/information processing; energy conservation; national student office organizations competitions; human relations; machine dictation/transcription; mail processing; record keeping; records management; reference sources; reprographics/duplicating; shorthand; telephone techniques; typing; and word/information processing. Each unit contains an overview of the levels of competency to be achieved, competency goals and performance objectives, course outline, learning activities, teaching suggestions, test items, student competency profile, and certificate of competency (suitable for reproduction).
