This document is a teachers guide explaining the purpose and contents of an educational radio series in Brooklyn, New York which dramatizes the issues affecting the roles of women who are first entering the work force, and explores opportunities for alternative career choices. Part one examines the cooperative education programs, the executive high school internship programs, and the Bureau of Educational and Vocational Guidance. The roles of these programs in the preparation of women students through career counseling services and on-the-job training experiences in diverse and specialized occupational settings are reviewed and compared. Part two is a program guide to thirteen radio social dramas which includes a synopsis, list of instructional objectives, references, group and individual follow-up activities, and suggested readings for each program. The guide is designed to enhance student understanding of the particular issue or problem illustrated by the dramatization. Additional references include a list of women's organizations and ethnic and minority organizations. (JCD)
