ABSTRACT The guide is for the use of teachers in the areas of

business and office occupations, grades 7-12. It focuses on recommended curriculum offerings and accountability levels for business and office occupations subjects and represents an effort to promote articulation and communication among the various educational settings in the State. The subjects covered are: basic business, bookkeeping, business communications, business law, cooperative office education, data processing, office machines, office procedures, personal finance, shorthand, simulation, transcription, and typewriting. In addition, principles of philosophy for business education in Utah (vocational, general education, and advanced career preparation) are listed. Suggested business curricula for junior high schools and high schools very briefly touch on general objectives and recommended courses. Recommended career oriented clusters for business education are also specified. The appendix lists the 27 most used punctuation rules in business correspondence and the most important attitudes and personality traits for clerical employment. An 11-page bibliography is included.
