Data Entry Curriculum.
Chinatown Manpower Project, Inc., New York, NY.
This document describes a project that provides full-time training in the microcomputing area of data entry/word processing as well as job-specific English as a second language (ESL) to adults whose first language is Chinese. The project includes a component that develops the trainees' language proficiency in business communications while emphasizing their understanding of American culture and the world of work. The daily class schedule is organized into eight 45-minute class periods: three periods of job-skills instruction, three periods of job-related ESL instruction, one period of group counseling/employability instruction, and one period of special activities such as individual counseling, tutoring, typing practice, and homework. The curriculum of the data entry course is divided into five parts: objectives, course outline, instructional methods and techniques, materials and resources, and testing materials and evaluation of trainees. Thirteen appendixes, making up the major part of the curriculum guide, cover the following: bibliographies of materials and reference books; sample instructional unit plans; program intake form; Bilingual Vocational Oral Proficiency Test, Form A; individual counseling and employability development record; trainee competency development record; job placement information; trainee employment status report; follow-up survey of former program participants; and employer follow-up questionnaire.
