The Choice Is Yours: A Women's Studies Curriculum for Non-College-Bound High School Girls.
Green, Cynthia P.
This women's studies course is designed to make non-college bound 11th and 12th grade female students aware of career options and alternatives, as well as of the issues women are raising regarding their place in society. The materials are developed specifically for noncollege students because decisions confront them immediately after high school, yet few career awareness materials are available for these women. Unit 1 examines the status and role of women in education, employment, health, law, and socioeconomic status. Unit 2 presents the various role options available to women, from being single to married, or in a career. Self-awareness and identity are the focus of the third unit. Career development concludes the units, making students aware of present and future employment needs, vocational training, job investigation, job-seeking skills, and remedies for sex discrimination. The units require the use of supplementary materials which are listed within each chapter. (Author/JR)
