Connections. A Program for Middle School Students about Women and Work and Skills for Good Jobs. Leader's Guide.
YWCA of Boston, MA.
This leader's guide is part of a multi-media curriculum package aimed at informing students in grades 6 through 9 about women's work prospects and problems and new opportunities for women in nontraditional occupations; it is also designed to help students engage in school activities to explore skilled trade and technical fields. The first section of the guide provides background information about women and work (female labor force participation, common sex stereotypes, the importance of technical and trade skills, and new job opportunities for women) and general suggestions for program implementation. Detailed instructions on how to use the materials provided in the fifteen-module gamebook (available separately through ERIC--see note) and the text of the gamebook itself constitute the bulk of the guide. The information prefacing each activity includes statements of the activity's purpose and what students will do to complete the activity, a list of supplies needed, necessary leader preparation, time needed, steps for introducing the activity, and suggested follow-up activities and questions. The third section of the guide contains the script of a sound filmstrip presentation designed to be used in conjunction with the gamebook. (MN)
