The Uses Of Personal Typewriting By Students At Utah State University And Skyview High School, Joseph Henry Wilson

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

The distinguishing characteristic in teaching the two is therefore not the skill accomplishment so much as the kind of material involved (13).

A study released by Hosler and Maske (4) seems to substantiate the reasoning that students in a personal-use typing ...

Much has been researched and written about school curriculum.

Virtually every subject in the curriculum has been considered. The overall concern has been the improvement of student learning (Woolf, 1972). Efforts have also been made to increase the relevancy of learning.
