Focus on the Future. Future Options/Creative Understanding through Seeing. Picture Stimulus Sets.
Cleveland State Univ., OH.
These picture stimulus sets are part of the "Focus on the Future" package which presents a group career guidance activity for secondary students designed to bring to light traditional biases and stereotyped attitudes about male and female roles and to create an awareness of how such attitudes may influence work expectations and future family relationships. The package also includes a leader's manual and a technical manual. The pictures are indefinite sketches of women, men, and children engaged in a variety of work-related and domestic activities. Attached to the sketches are student response sheets on which students write their reactions to four or five questions about the sketches for later discussion with the group. Seven of the pictures are black and white drawings. Their titles are "Leaving Home,""Kitchen,""Work Line,""Travelers,""Store,""Office," and "Laboratory." For example, the picture entitled "Store" depicts a man and a child grocery shopping. One question is, "Do they do this together on a regular basis? Tell why or why not." The eighth "picture" is a blank sheet, and students are invited to fill it in to portray their own future. (LMS)
