This curriculum guide is one of five developed as part of the Illinois Plan for Business, Marketing, and Management Education for use in 9th and 10th grades. The curriculum guide includes teacher and student activities that can be implemented in many ways. Information on how to integrate the activity objectives of the Illinois Plan into the State Learning Goals also is included. A model for the curriculum is presented that suggests areas and grade levels of study, and a plan for implementing the course is provided, along with resource lists of 42 journal articles and 6 books and a 75-item glossary. The guide consists of 15 units: microcomputer operations, electronic typewriter operations, key by touch system, editing techniques, develop speed and accuracy on keyboard, center text, personal letters, business letters, envelopes, interoffice memoranda, outlines, manuscripts and reports, columnar tables, career decision activities, and numeric 10-key pad. Each unit includes general comments, a topical outline, unit objectives, teacher resources, and student activities with suggestions for evaluation. Eight appendixes include the following: (1) evaluation of microcomputer software for keyboarding; (2) supplies and preventive maintenance; (3) criteria for evaluation of straight-copy timings; (4) criteria for evaluation of production tests; (5) preparation for teaching; (6) control of software; (7) plans for integration of instructional activities to state learning goals; and (8) a crosswalk of instructional activities to generalizable skills, transition skills, vocational ethics skills, and state learning goals.
