Expanding Options. A Model to Attract Secondary Students into Nontraditional Vocational Programs. For Emphasis in: Building Trades, Electronics, Health Services, Machine Shop, Welding.
Good, James D.; DeVore, Mary Ann
This model has been designed for use by Missouri secondary schools in attracting females and males into nontraditional occupational programs. The research-based strategies are intended for implementation in the following areas: attracting females into building trades, electronics, machine shop, and welding; and males into secondary health services. The model is organized in nine sections. The introductory section contains reasons for recruiting nontraditional workers, a summary of legislation pertinent to equal opportunity, and instructions for using the materials. In section 2, background information and research findings relating to influencing enrollment of nontraditional students are provided, setting the stage for the strategies for increasing nontraditional enrollments, evolved from research, which follow in section 3. Sections 4-7 contain transparency masters; activities for action/discussion use in classrooms; student activities, inservice training, and parent meetings; activity sheets to be used with the activities; and a list of audiovisual and printed resource materials. The final two sections of the manual--action planning and evaluation--provide instructions to aid the teacher in assessing the group's position, selecting strategies, and implementing activities necessary to carry out each strategy; plus six evaluation sheets (both process and product oriented.)
