This project was undertaken to identify, collect, classify, and assess career education treatment units that have proved effective or can be readily field tested. A nationwide field survey of various educational sources was made to identify a broad spectrum of career education treatment units. Follow-up and site visits were made to collect identified units. A high level of interest in career education was found in public schools and state departments of education throughout the nation. Many of the development efforts in progress are aimed at grades K-6. The report summarizes the treatment units which were assessed, including: (1) developing organization, (2) title, (3) grade level, (4) usefulness in local education agency installations, (5) career education element, (6) occupational cluster, (7) method of presentation, and (8) overall evaluation. An accompanying second volume of 16 appendixes provides data on the search contacts made, processing techniques used, and information on additional materials, sources, and related organizational efforts.
