The costs for this program have been underwritten by U.S. Bank.

The goal of this training is to have participants develop a middle or high school careers unit, one or two weeks in length, for their classroom. We would like to publish your unit for the use of other educators. In order to publish any unit with confidence, we would like you to commit to pretesting (we’ll supply the testing instrument), presenting the unit (or a portion thereof), post-testing, and reporting your results online (results are for internal use only and will only contain summary statistics).This gives you an opportunity to field test your unit. I understand that this will not be possible for some of you
