Manitoba Dept. of Education and Training, Winnipeg.
This curriculum guide was developed for a one-credit course for students in high schools in Manitoba. The course is designed to provide students with mastery-level keyboarding skills, to develop a wide range of word processing techniques and to combine their skills and knowledge in producing mailable documents. The focus of the course is on developing marketable keyboarding and word processing skills. The course is the final half-credit course in the keyboarding and word processing series. 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) four units of study. The units cover these topics: review of word processing, keyboarding skills development, special features, and mailable production. Units consist of a goal, objectives, and teaching methods keyed to the objectives. A bibliography listing 7 texts, 12 guides to WordPerfect, 7 guides to Microsoft Word, and a list of 9 resources and sources for materials completes the guide. (KC)
