ADVENTURE FITNESS, a revision of LINE ROLLERING, is an entry-level keyboarding/word processing simulation for students who have completed one semester of keyboarding. Students reinforce their keying and document formatting skills as part-time assistants of Adventure Fitness, a sports center consisting of such activities as roller- and in-line skating, basketball, handball, batting cages, and a golf driving range. The simulation focuses on using word processing software to prepare business documents. Emphasis is placed on e-mail, letters, envelopes, memos, tables, announcements, and reports. Students key from realistic sources, including script, rough draft, and keyed copy. This simulation offers opportunities to use decision-making and critical-thinking skills, while dealing with daily routine office situations.
