Building Your Own Scenario: Trade and Industry, Sex Equity, and Alternative Futures.
Vetter, Louise; And Others
This training manual, one in a series of eight, has been developed to help state and local supervisors and teacher educators in trade and industrial education to conduct a workshop on sex equity, as it relates to their future programs, for vocational education teachers and administrators in the trade and industrial service area. The workshop's intent is to help these professionals to infuse the concepts and practices of sex equity throughout trade and industrial education programs. Following an introduction which provides background on the issues of sex equity and outlines the manual, the guide contains five exercises for group participation. First, with the chance to examine "what is" in a program, participants complete descriptions focusing on their communities and educational agencies. Then, through a "what if" exercise, three alternative scenarios for the future are provided with discussion questions for relating these possible futures to sex equity and trade and industrial education. Once the participants have considered "what is" and "what if," a group exercise for brainstorming needs and possible goals for sex equity is provided. This is followed by an individual planning exercise for achieving those goals along with a resource listing of current sex equity publications. A review of the legislative basis for sex equity is included in the appendix. A facilitator guide accompanies this manual. (KC)
