Sex Roles as They Affect Talented Students' Career Development.
Tysse, Dorothy J.
Based on the concept that more occupational choices are opening to both men and women and that career development has become more complex, this review considers two questions: (1) Why do gifted and talented men and women limit themselves to traditional career choices? and (2) How can counselors, teachers, and parents help gifted students broaden their career options? The role of socialization and perceived gender distinctions in career choice is discussed. Past research dealing with sex role stereotypes is examined, and the correlation of cognitive development and sex role development is discussed. The materials also review ways in which parents, counselors and teachers can help by providing role models, discussing dual career families, role playing family and career decisions, examining traditional and non-traditional sex roles and families, and being aware of media stereotypes.
