This first volume of a two-volume manual provides a structure for the analysis of the design of cooperative education and the implementation of the design in terms of the 49 key elements of cooperative education. It is intended for use by persons responsible for cooperative education at state and local levels. Volume I contains the introduction and a section on how to use the manual which provides: general information about the key element approach, the definitions of the key elements, an outline of the distribution of elements by level of importance and functional area, suggestions on how to incorporate materials from a key element description into the design, a discussion of general problems involved in attempts to replicate an element, and some techniques for modifying a key element to make it fit the parameters of a specific situation. This volume also contains the appendixes, including definitions of key elements (arranged into functional areas and grouped within area by level of importance), a form with instructions for making a force-field analysis, an example of a completed force-field analysis, and a worksheet for planning changes to improve an element.
