This annual journal contains nine articles dealing with business education in Louisiana and elsewhere. The articles "Word Processing Competencies: Which Ones Are Really Necessary?" (Patricia Lynn Anderson, Mary Alice Griffin) and "English Basics Were Developed in Shorthand--Why Not in Keyboarding?" (Clora Mae Baker, Marcia A. Anderson-Yates, Grace Abolaji) report studies conducted in Georgia and Illinois, respectively. "National Business and Education Skills Standards: Does Business Education Need Them?" (Phyllis C. Bunn) explores the implications of implementing national skill standards. The articles "Active Learning Techniques for Use in the Vocational Education Classroom" (Donna Holmquist) and "E-Mail Principles that Business Teachers Should Include in Their Curriculum" (Marcia L. James, Robert M. Schramm) both provide practical suggestions for classroom teachers. The need for students to understand other cultures is emphasized in "Technology and International Communication" (M. Latif Javed). The articles "Using Teams in Business Communication Classes" (Laura MacLeod, Sandra J. Nelson) and "Enhancing Computer Simulations through Consensual Business Problem-Solving Formats: Impacts of Student Diversity upon Learning Outcomes" (James L. Morrison) present ideas for classroom projects. "Expanding Business Education Programs: Providing a School-Within-a-School" (Rita Thomas Noel) describes one North Carolina business teacher's efforts to improve business education. Several papers contain substantial bibliographies. (MN)
