A Planning Program to Develop Career Path Workshops for Women Students.
Heller, Barbara R.; And Others
A session-by-session plan for a series of after-school Career Path workshops for 11th grade women students is outlined. Designed as a cooperative effort of community colleges and high schools, the objective of the workshops is to increase the number of women entering nontraditional technical and professional careers by providing (l) occupational/educational information and opportunity to plan for a career, and (2) supplementary instruction in math and science skills necessary for many nontraditional careers. The 11-session program leads participants to explore the following: personal accomplishments and skills, values and skills important to occupational choice, fear of mathematics and the myths contributing to that fear, approaches to solving math problems, nontraditional career options for women, sources of occupational information and the requirements for various occupational alternatives, educational requirements and options for a specific career choice, college admission and financial aid, career and lifestyle options, career decision-making, and "career pathing" (steps to accomplish goals). For each session, objectives, strategies, content, and resources are described. The math-science supplemental component consists of five modules introducing calculus, statistics, scientific processes, computers, and providing preparation for the Scholastic Aptitude Test. It is noted that the workshop design and content have not been field tested. (MB)
