Part of a series devoted to the topic of career education in transportation, this manual, which is intended for use by students in grades 11 and 12, is composed of three units designed to aid in preparing students for entry level positions or postsecondary education in the field of transportation. Unit I, which is concerned with the student's general development, includes such subjects as sources of occupational information, maps, paperwork, women's role in the world of work, labor unions, education, and job application skills. Unit II treats specific skills required by various careers in transportation: (1) tracing the origin and flow of power through a transportation system; (2) computing the cost of operating an automobile; (3) computing the cost of operating a truck; (4) performing routine automotive transportation maintenance; (5) cleaning and gapping a spark plug; (6) tuning a four-cycle engine; (7) buying used transportation; (8) monitoring surface transportation noise; (9) advancing in the retail car and truck business; and (10) developing one's own job in transportation. For each of these skills, the following items are provided: student objectives, related occupations, background information, implementation of learning activities, resource materials, and student worksheets. Unit III introduces the student to the idea of entrepreneurship in the transportation business. (A teachers' guide for a career preparation program to be used in conjunction with this student manual is published separately, CE 013 881.) (ELG)
