Sex Bias and Work. Module 3. Choosing Occupations and Life Roles.
Pfiffner, Karen J.
This module on sex bias and work, the last in a series of three volumes of sex-fair career guidance activities, deals with choosing occupations and life roles. Addressed in the module are 16 learning activities that cover many of the sex-bias-related obstacles, both attitudinal and occupational, that students will be facing upon entering the world of work. Specific topics covered in the learning activities include finding a job, using personal data sheets, filling out a job application, participating in job interviews, career counseling, personal development, worker alienation, getting fired, unions, and homemaking as a career. Each activity contains a concept, a description of the activity, an overall goal, a list of needed materials, instructions for conducting the activity, discussion topics, outcome objectives, and suggestions for follow-up and alternative activities.
