Options: A Career Development Curriculum for Rural High School Students. Unit IV, The Juggling Act: Lives and Careers.
Dunne, Faith; And Others
The fourth and final unit in a 9-12 week life planning and career development program designed for high school students in rural areas uses imaginary case studies of rural women to involve students in solving complex life problems through simulation. Individual lessons in the 13-day unit focus on job search techniques (resumes, interviews, skills identification, small business establishment), job conflicts, sex discrimination, welfare, the pros and cons of marriage, job status, vocational training, family-career conflicts, family goals, and household budgets. Each lesson contains teaching instructions, a materials list, learning objectives, student activity sheets, optional activities, and teaching hints. The unit also contains an introduction to the program, an appendix of additional instructional information and student activities, and information regarding the adaptation of the unit to suit the local situation. Although the basic field-tested curriculum applies to the rural Midwest, field-tested packages are available for four other rural regions in the United States (Northwest, Southwest, Northeast, Appalachian South).
