The curriculum guide outlines learning patterns which may be adapted or adopted by the creative teacher in occupational education. Emphasis is placed on processes basic to specific job activities found within the areas of: (1) business education, (2) home economics, and (3) industrial arts. Students are able to associate, integrate, and catalog these basic processes with specific job roles or careers ranging from entry level jobs to administrative positions.

Units covered include: business communications, information processing, merchandising, clothing and textiles, foods and nutrition, home, health and community service, construction, manufacturing, power and transportation, and visual communications.
