Parent Awareness. Sex Equity Training Package. Unlocking Nontraditional Careers. Research and Development Series No. 215C.
This training package consists of materials for high school guidance counselors to use to make students' parents aware of the different vocational programs and of their value to students in order to gain parent support. It also helps students reach informed decisions regarding which courses to take and which future jobs to prepare to fill. The package consists of a series of activities for use in a variety of settings with parents of potential students of nontraditional vocational education programs. Among the segments are group discussions, a filmstrip presentation, an attitudinal checklist, a quiz, and a forum that includes a discussion of a summary of nontraditional occupations that need to gain a greater balance between the sexes, with a job market forecast of anticipated vacancies. The material in the package is planned for a 3-hour evening session or a half day. The package contains a list of materials needed and teacher notes, a script for the filmstrip, handouts, and transparency masters. (KC)
