Introductory materials include a business education program philosophy, a list of learning principles applied to business education, a list of program objectives, a schematic overview of a business education high school program, course sequences, guidelines for structuring business education courses, and a business education matrix. These materials specifically for office procedures 20-30 follow: an introduction, objectives, and a flowchart of modules. These components are provided for each of the 10 modules: purpose and a chart that correlates topics with learning tasks and teaching notes.
