Prepared during the first year of a 3-year pilot program, this working draft of a resource guide represents efforts to develop and field test resource units for career education, Grades 1-6. The units, which include objectives and learning activities, are clustered as follows: (1) Distribution and Marketing, (2) Agriculture-Natural Resources, (3) Fine Arts and Humanities, (4) Communications and Media, (5) Construction, (6) Health, (7) Hospitality and Recreation, (8) Manufacturing, (9) Office and Business, (10) Transportation, (11) Environmental Control, (12) Public Service, and (13) Consumer and Homemaking. Also included are an integrated plan for the curriculum, a suggested plan for presenting the units to the various grades, and a sample unit outline. The material was written by a school principal and his inschool teachers, who worked to preserve the individuality of each unit plan so that each might serve as a springboard for other teachers. The more fully developed units contain bibliographies and evaluation guidelines. (CD)
