Choices & Careers; Free to Choose: Decision Making. Books II and III and Leaders Guide.
Because a wise decision maker is better able to bring about the results that she wants and to avoid those that she does not want, the unit on decision making skills is designed to help American Indian girls develop skills that enable them to identify decisions, to set goals, to find and use information, to look at alternatives or choices, and to consider the consequences of choices. The unit consists of two parts, each containing a narrative section and an activity section, one for girls aged 12 to 14 and one for those from 15 to 18. Many of the learning experiences in the activity sections deal with requirements for high school graduation, different types of high school courses, and high school preparation for college. The attached leaders' guide identifies concepts to be taught, states objectives, gives background information, and outlines learning experiences for each concept. (Author/CM)
