This study was undertaken to: 1. Develop a guide for implementing education and the marketing and distribution occupational clusters into a Distributive Education program. 2. Develop a list of facilities, equipment, and materials necessary for implementation of the above plan. 3. Develop a procedure for post-evaluation of the above plan. Numerous writings discuss career education and its acknowledged benefits. However, in order to obtain those benefits, the concept of career education must be implemented into our classrooms. Other than information about various career mini-units being used, very little data can be found which talks about career education in terms of classroom activities and curriculum design. This study is an attempt to assemble usable guidelines which can result in the successful operation of the career development concept in a distributive education classroom. Chapter III of this paper will serve as a step-by-step guide for implementation; and hopefully, it can curb the hesitancy of many teachers to develop and establish similar programs for their own use.
