The 24 participants attended an Education Professions Development Act (EPDA) institute during the summer of 1970 which was designed to train elementary teachers to develop an awareness of occupations in their children, an ability to utilize community resources, and an ability to articulate and integrate vocational awareness in the elementary school curriculum. Activities included a number of speakers, field trips, group work in preparing, executing, and evaluating a unit on an occupation, individual work reviewing literature concerning vocational education, and/or awareness, and developing an action plan. Participant interest contributed to the success of the institute. Evaluation summaries by a local director of occupational education, unit plans, individual unit and institute evaluations, action plans, and individual literature reviews are included in the report.
