The unit includes an introduction, "About Careers," which explains to American Indian parents the changes that have taken place in the work of Indian women from long ago to the present. The section includes information about women workers and the many career opportunities now available to them, as well as some of the barriers they face. "About Careers" also provides a brief description of the girls' units: "Exploring Careers,""Career Opportunities," Educational Opportunities," and "Decision Making." Learning experiences are devised to help adults understand the focus of each of the girls' units. There are a number of case studies for discussion. The unit includes additional learning experiences for a parent to do with a daughter. The unit is also concerned with making adults aware of the fact that many of the jobs and educational opportunities available to young girls are also available to older adults. The leaders' guide contains objectives and learning activities for use with parents. (Author/CM)
