Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield. Dept. of Adult, Vocational and Technical Education.
This curriculum guide is one of five developed as part of the Illinois Plan for Business, Marketing, and Management Education for use at the orientation level (typically the 9th and 10th grades). The curriculum guide includes a wide variety of teacher and student activities that provide extensive flexibility for implementation. Information on how to integrate the activity objectives of the Illinois Plan into the State Learning Goals is also included. A model for the curriculum is presented that suggests areas and grade levels of study. The guide consists of seven units that cover the following: theory of communication; listening skills; nonverbal communications; reading; basic mechanics; writing; and speaking skills (conversation, telephone, and interview). Each unit includes an introduction, a topical outline, unit objectives, general comments, suggested student activities with suggestions for evaluation, and teacher resources. Three appendixes include the following: (1) plans for integration of instructional activities to state learning goals; (2) a crosswalk of instructional activities to generalizable skills, transition skills, vocational ethics skills, and state learning goals; and (3) an integrated organization of instructional activities for the business and technology concepts course, which includes business communications and business computations.
