Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1984 
76 p. 

Designed to give the teacher ideas for enlivening and enriching the teaching of business subjects, this publication on teaching keyboarding/typewriting is part of the Rapid Reader series. It begins by differentiating between keyboarding and typewriting and establishing the criteria for making decisions regarding appropriate content and methodology. A discussion of content in teaching focuses on determination of activities performed by employed and personal-use typists and suggests an outline for typewriting courses. Two sections then present a number of suggestions for introducing the keyboard and for improving the skill of production typists. A recommendation contrasting what should be happening in the classroom with what has traditionally taken place is followed by a brief explanation. Individualization of learning and the possible advantages and disadvantages of individualized programs are then considered. The discussion of grading examines reliability and validity of measurement instruments, the three most commonly used methods of the grading of keyboarding, evolving grades from separate speed and accuracy scores, the grading of production typewriting, and combining grades to determine a terminal performance grade. Criteria are also offered for selecting textbooks and microcomputer software. An appendix lists sources of instructional materials. (YLB)
