69 p. 

This teaching guide provides secondary and postsecondary business teachers with ideas for teaching typewriting and evaluating students. Content is presented in seven sections. The first section discusses learning principles as they relate to psychomotor skill development including, stimulus-response, association, knowledge of results, temporal contiguity, mediation, and kinesthesis. Section 2 presents behavioral objectives for a six segment (two-year) typewriting course in which students progress from skills useful to both personal use and employed typists to those primarily used in job settings. Section 3 explains seventeen classroom do's and don'ts for introducing the keyboard utilizing the principles discussed in the first section as a basis. Section 4 discusses thirteen do's and don'ts for improving the skill of production typists. Section 5 discusses the traditional and individualized instructional approaches to teaching typewriting and lists the advantages and disadvantages of individualized programs. Section 6 discusses grading and covers reliability and validity, methods for grading of straight-copy typewriting (error cut-off, net words per minute, and gross words per minute and errors considered separately), evolving grades from separate speed and accuracy scores, and the grading of production typewriting. The last section lists reference materials for instructional use. The names and addresses of sources for textbooks and audiovisual instructional aids are appended. (EM)
