Choices & Careers; Free to Choose: Educational Opportunities. Books II and III and Leaders Guide.
Because knowledge of educational opportunities is one of the most important factors in choosing a career, the objectives of this unit are to provide both the leader and American Indian girls involved in the career development program with general information about educational opportunities and to provide sources when specific information is needed. The unit focuses on college education, vocational-technical schools, and apprenticeship programs. It 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. A portion of the activity sections consists of case studies for discussion and problem solving. There are exercises to help girls examine their personal values. "Objectives and Occupations" demonstrates the important relationship between objectives and career choices. A slide set entitled "Women in Apprenticeships" is available separately to acquaint the girls with the variety of career opportunities available through apprenticeship programs. The leaders' guide contains background information on various educational opportunities and includes suggestions for financing attendance. There is a list of supplemental information which may be ordered for use with the unit. (CM)
