Advanced Keyboarding 25G. Interim Guide.
Manitoba Dept. of Education and Training, Winnipeg.
This curriculum guide was developed for an advanced half-credit course in a series of two that deal with keyboarding skills for high schools and elementary grades in Manitoba. The course is designed to improve a student's ability to manipulate a keyboard by reinforcing confidence and improving the functional skill level. The guide includes the following components: (1) an employability skills profile; (2) recommended program patterns for business education courses; (3) rationale for the program; (4) evaluation methods; (5) time allotments; (6) goals and objectives; and (7) five units of study. The units cover a review of introductory keyboarding, keyboarding skills development, advanced formatting, composition, and production. Units consist of a goal, objectives, and teaching methods keyed to the objectives. A bibliography listing 39 texts and an address for business education materials completes the guide. (KC)
