To help American Indian girls understand some of the many career opportunities which are available to them, this unit provides information on two job clusters; one cluster consists of a group of 15 related jobs, and the other is a group based on school subjects. The unit includes ideas for field trips and guest speakers, and it offers a variety of learning experiences as a means of exploring career opportunities. A work orientation questionnaire helps girls to decide if they are more task-oriented or people-oriented. For the older girls (15-18), there is an extensive section on employment trends and prospects. The leaders' guide contains detailed instructions for conducting the learning activities for girls aged 9 to 11, 12 to 14, and 15 to 18. There is also a list of supplemental material which may be ordered. (CM)
