A K-12 computer literacy course of study is presented. Four basic parts are included: (1) a reference index which organizes 37 computer literacy topics into seven major categories; (2) a master index which presents goals for each topic by grade level and lists a reference number for each goal; (3) a scope and sequence organized by grade level which indicates when each goal is introduced, when it is continued and expanded, and when there is a major reintroduction; and (4) an expanded chart organized by grade level which presents a hierarchy of categories, topics, goals, behavioral objectives, and activities. The seven major categories are: what a computer is, keyboarding skills, computer applications, computer system components, computer operations, programming, and social implications of the computer. The scope and sequence is divided into user literacy goals and technical literacy goals. User literacy goals are those concepts, abilities, and skills that are essential for all people in the new information age. Technical literacy goals are designed for students who may be interested in pursuing careers in which computers or computer-related skills will be required. (DC)
