The six chapters cover the six major objectives. Chapter 1 reviews the project's products and related activities. The processes used to formulate an operational definition for economic literacy are described in chapter 2. Two drafts and the final definition are provided. The third chapter describes the assessment of selected instructional programs in five pilot schools to determine the status of economic literacy instruction within the selected program offerings. The instrument used to rate curriculum materials and findings of the review are presented. Chapters 4 and 5 discuss the development of the project's two products: a suggested instructional content guide and an annotated bibliographic resource guide for vocational education programs. Data from a survey to determine content and a description of the content of the resource guide are provided. The final chapter discusses project efforts to promote economic literacy through vocational student organizations. (YLB)
