This unit for American Indian girls focuses upon exploring careers by using a variety of activities. Learning experiences suggested in the unit include field trips to get a social security card and a work permit. There are activities structured for involving young people in making a collage of careers and for making a job mobile. The girls have an opportunity to observe adults at work and to interview them. Self-profile units help the girls look closely at characteristics about themselves that may influence the careers they choose, and job profile units aid girls in systematically seeking out and recording information about jobs that may influence their career choice. Self-profile and job profile units are included for girls aged 9 to 11, 12 to 14, and 15 to 18. The leaders' guide includes detailed information on the arrangements and materials that are needed for each activity. (Author/CM)
