Project: Strategies for Sex Fairness. Is My Guidance Test Limiting Me in Considering Future Roles?
Mook, Corena; Legg, Marilyn
One of a series of instructional packets to aid schools in reducing sex stereotyping, this guide for teachers (junior high and above) is designed to make students aware of the role interest tests can play in the process of choosing an occupation to prepare for. Focus is on interpreting test results in such a way that past societal expectations are not limiting today's options. The packet is suggested for use as part of a career exploration unit, in introducing the use of the Dictionary of Occupational Titles, or in preparing students to take an established interest test. Contents include a teacher's script (materials to be presented), handout master for a "Mini Interest Quiz," a transparency master, and class discussion guide. (JT)
