Look into the Future: Displaced Clerical Project. Final Report.
Stover, Deborah A.
"Look into the Future" is a program created by a Job Training Partnership Act project and 9to5, Working Women Education Fund, to address the training and retraining needs of office workers in light of the advances in computer and communications systems. This guide describes the model project and suggests steps other organizations can take to implement it. The guide is organized in 10 sections that contain the following: goals and objectives; curriculum development; analytical, motivational, educational, and vocational exploration components, which include learning activities, teacher or trainer notes, test items, and information sheets; participant information for those who took the displaced clerical workers workshop developed in the project; evaluation methods sheets for evaluating participants and for participants to evaluate the project; recommendations for successful project implementation; and additional handouts (communication skills self-test, glossary of common computer terminology, and "How to Write a Business Letter" by Malcolm Forbes).
