Traditional vs. Non-Traditional: Expanding Career Choices. Middle School Unit.
Designed to inform students about all the career opportunities available to them and to help them not limit themselves to sex-stereotyped career choices, these Project NEW (Nontraditional Employment for Women) instructional materials contain lesson plans and learning activities for use in a five-day unit at the middle school level. Lesson plans outlining daily objectives, lesson times, preparation procedures, teaching tactics, homework, and enrichment exercises are provided for each of the five days. Learning activities and instructional materials supplied in the unit include a sex role/stereotype pretest, multiple choice and question-and-answer exercises on identifying sex stereotyping, brief histories of various phases of the women's rights movement, stories illustrating stereotyping behavior, identification of role models, role playing activities, simulated situations, discussions, and a posttest. Transparency masters are also presented. An annotated resources list for nontraditional jobs and sex role stereotyping, which includes books, films, games and kits, photographs and posters, filmstrips, video cassettes, and slides, is appended. (A corresponding instructional unit for use in high schools is available separately through ERIC--see note.) (MN)
