One of 11 guides intended for use at the junior high school level of career exploration, the primary focus of the teacher's guide is on activities exploring the cluster area of agribusiness.

Each unit specifies a unit purpose and objectives and includes an outline of unit content, teaching-learning activities, evaluation techniques, and suggested resources. Related instructional materials accompany each unit and include reference lists, charts, transparency masters and sample forms.
