Each chapter concludes with a questions and activities section and a list of suggested source materials. Appended materials contain additional examples and information, and include: discussions held over a three year period by a joint committee appointed by the Industrial Arts and Trade and Industrial Education Divisions of the American Vocational Association; a list of Industrial Service Occupations Educational Programs; and program questionnaires.
