Arkansas' Office Procedures Curriculum Guide.
This curriculum guide provides teachers of office procedures classes with unit lesson plans and information about resource materials that can be examined, selected, and integrated into the instructional program. Contents are mainly established for the following two types of secondary-level programs: cooperative office education and intensive office laboratory. A battery plan (group instruction) contains these ten units of instruction: business communications, careers, developmental skills, human relations, introduction to data processing, job preparation and application, legal aspects, mail handling and shipping, money management, and payroll. A unit cover sheet provides description of content, unit objective, special instructions, and suggested time. Each one-page lesson plan, representing one day's instruction for one period, follows this format: aids/supplies needed, instructional objectives, learner activities, teacher activities, and assignments. Optional activities and selected resources are also provided. Following a list of minimum equipment requirements, two types of rotation plans--group and individualized--are provided. Other materials included in this guide are selected sample flow-of-work office simulations, enrichment of simulation, selected optional activities, Resources Directory, and sample student profile and lesson plan.
