Hill, Mary Lou
Designed for use in career education workshops and other staff development activities of persons in schools and the community who are responsible for promoting, planning, implementing, and evaluating career education in a school or district, formulating school policies and procedures, and designing or revising curriculum, this guide was prepared to meet California's staff development needs regarding the techniques and strategies for implementing career education in grade levels K-12.
