Cathie, Shirley B.
Project SELECT (Strategies for Equalizing and Linking Education and Career Training) is a means of promoting sex equity in vocational education and career preparation. SELECT consists of three handbooks for middle or junior high school students, teachers, and parents and a resource booklet entitled "Women at Work." These materials are designed to help show that significant change is occurring in vocational education due to the increased number of women now working outside the home and other changes taking place in American society. This document includes the handbook for teachers and is divided into five units. These units provide information and activities to help the student in the following areas: (1) thinking about career options open to them; (2) understanding the laws promoting sex equity in education; (3) exploring individual interests, abilities, and training needs; (4) becoming more aware of social changes, especially changes in the labor market for women; and (5) utilizing this handbook and other resources in planning for the future. A glossary of important terms is also included. (BM)
