A model for the curriculum is presented that suggests areas and grade levels of study. A plan for implementing the course for one semester or two semesters is provided, along with lists of 4 audiovisual materials; 32 journal articles; 66 books, workbooks, and supplemental materials; 90 software packages and related books (annotated); 7 other resources; and 42 teacher references (annotated). The guide consists of nine units that cover the following: the computer and its capabilities; hardware and software concepts; getting ready for computer software applications; word processing applications; spreadsheet applications; database applications; integrated applications; graphics applications; and telecommunications. Each unit includes an overview, a topical outline, unit objectives, and suggested student activities with suggestions for evaluation. Two appendixes consist of plans for integration of instructional activities to state learning goals; and a crosswalk of instructional activities to generalizable skills, transition skills, vocational ethics skills, and state learning goals.
