Orientation to Careers in Transportation. Student Manual.
One of a series devoted to the topic of career education in transportation, this guide is designed for elementary and junior high school students to use in gaining career orientation. The three units that comprise this guide provide student activities for the three program areas outlined in the teacher's guide, which is published separately (CE 013 877).
