The syllabus gives the classroom teacher and school administrator a complete course outline with correlated teaching suggestions in addition to suggested projects and sources for a management library. Chapters 1, 2, and 3 offer general information concerning course objectives and organization, administrative considerations, and instructional priorities and strategies.

Specific suggestions and resource materials are offered for related projects.
