Eliminating Stereotypes of Ethnic Minorities Through Career Guidance.
Brooks, Lois P.
This Module is designed for use by guidance personnel in grades k-12 and at the postsecondary level. These include teachers, administrators, counselors, paraprofessionals, pupil personnel workers and any others who provide services to ethnic minority populations. This Module will help each participant to differentiate between behaviors that reinforce stereotypes of ethnic minority persons and behaviors that facilitate greater awareness of people as individuals, to recognize that ethnically different individuals are unique persons, to identify effects of negative stereotyping on behavior, to identify resources that can provide participants with a broader perspective on the history and culture of a given ethnic minority group, and to identify ethnic-related stereotypes present in career materials. The module is designed as a six-hour workshop to be run by a coordinator. In addition to textual material and activities on each of the target skill areas, the module contains abstracts of related state projects and a list of reference materials. (Author/BP)
