It's My Life! Career Paths for Young Women in Transition. Coordinator's Handbook.
Florio, Carol; And Others
This document is the coordinator's handbook for a four-day workshop for young women in transition from high school to two-year colleges. The program covers career information, self-awareness and skills assessment (with special regard for mathematics), the many roles of women, and decision making and planning. It includes large- and small-group sessions, written exercises and problem-solving activities, and interaction with adult role models. The manual is organized into six chapters. Chapter 1 presents the rationale for the program and the workshop's goals and objectives. Chapter 2 gives the title and length of each session and summarizes the purpose and content of each day's events. Chapter 3 outlines everything coordinator and staff will do to prepare for the first day of the workshop. Chapter 4 is a step-by-step log for each day of the workshop. Chapter 5 is a review of changes in the model workshop the coordinator may wish to consider. Chapter 6 makes a case for evaluation and describes the tools and procedures that could be used to evaluate the workshop. The appendixes contain the group leader's script; samples and models of the print materials used in the workshop; a list of sources for working women panelists and for free literature; and model texts for the coordinator's opening and closing remarks for the workshop. In addition to the guidelines, scripts, and program materials contained in this document, six black-and-white 3/4" video cassettes accompany this handbook and complete the package. (For information on the cassettes, write to publisher.) (KC)
