Eighteen detailed program recommendations are listed. A four-page reference list and a glossary are included. Appendixes (158 pages) contain: elementary and middle school goals, behavioral objectives and coordinated activities, a list of occupational cluster related activities, high school objectives, content of civics and experimental career guidance programs, conference and workshop schedules, the career development inventory, Columbia University's formative evaluation reports, reaction sheets from career education staff, career education brochure, and the research evaluation design.
