Discussed in section 2, which is devoted to implementing the ICP document, are the following topics: components of the ICP document (ICP folder, career planner, educational planner, career skills checklist, cumulative record of assessments, and career and job experiences record); management strategies; middle-grade activities prior to initiating an ICP; high school review activities; and evaluation. Presented in section 3, which covers use of the ICP in the elementary grades, are a rationale for involving the elementary grades in the ICP development process, career development activities, and ICP activities.
