Introductory pages list procedures for using the guide; essential elements for all vocational programs, for office education, and for this guide; a suggested scope and sequence; and suggested resources. The guide is divided into 11 units that are correlated with the essential elements for business computer programming II. Units are grouped into five sections that contain the essential elements, suggested unit lesson plans, answer sheets, and terminology for the units within the section. Each unit contains the following: objectives for both the units and the student; generalization; unit overview; activity sheets; competency tests; and proficiency checklists. Sections (and units) are as follows: (1) system development process (system analysis and design, system development, implementation, user documentation); (2) documentation and maintenance (documentation, program maintenance); (3) structured programming (program specification and development cycle, program design, coding, operating systems environment); and (4) program testing (program testing). Appendixes include additional teacher activities, reference and resource addresses, 2+2+2 guidelines, modification for special needs students, an outline of common essential elements for all ofice education programs, and a supplementary unit on the system development process.
