Project: Strategies for Sex Fairness. Profile of a Non-Traditional Student.
Mook, Corena; Legg, Marilyn
One of a series of instructional packets to aid schools in reducing sex stereotypes, this inservice guide for use with school personnel is designed to provide vocational educators with clues to potential problems which their nontraditional students may face in their future roles. A picture is presented of nontraditional employees: women sent by their employers to the American Institute of Baking. Focus is on their attitudes regarding positive and negative aspects and problems faced by women in the food industry. Additional preparation the women might have found useful is suggested. Contents include a leader's script (material to be presented), two handout masters, and a class discussion guide. Handouts list (1) common problems faced by nontraditional blue collar workers, with matching counter measures and (2) characteristics of nontraditional students. The packet is designed for use alone, in combination with other packets (see Note), or to supplement existing inservice units. (JT)
