Choices & Careers; Free to Choose: Life Span Planning. Books I, II, and III and Leaders Guide.
The purpose of this unit is to provide American Indian girls with the opportunity to make a plan for their whole lives, and thus to learn to project the consequences of their decisions into the future. It might be appropriate to use this unit as the last one in the program. The unit consists of three activities for each girl: filling out the Life Span Plan; making a banner, pictograph, or collage which will symbolize her life; and writing a life story as she hopes her life will be. Ojibwa and Sioux pictographs are included in the girls' books, but girls may want to create other pictographs that will better express their plans and ideas about life. Directions for use accompany the pictographs. An art show might be held when the project is completed. The unit includes books for girls aged 9 to 11, 12 to 14, and 15 to 18, and a Life Span Plan for girls aged 9 to 18. The leaders' guide offers suggestions for carrying out the activities of the unit.
