Making Changes: Employment Orientation for Immigrant Women. Facilitator's Guide.
Kainola, May Ann
The overall objective of the "Making Changes" program, which is the subject of this facilitator handbook, is to help immigrant women in Canada establish more meaningful lives, specifically in terms of employment. After briefly describing the content of the program (career planning, information sharing and getting, job search skills, the language component, assertiveness development, and critical awareness development), the handbook lists detailed short-term and long-term objectives. This is followed by advice on implementing the program. The section on methodology (approximately one-half of the handbook) begins with a discussion of the principles of the pedagogic approach, the language component, and teaching techniques. The major part of the methodology section discusses the components of the participants' handbook (meant to accompany this volume) and suggests activities and facilitation techniques for each of the nine units in the participants' handbook. Appendixes contain information on pre-program interview questions, the final evaluation questionnaire, a promotional flyer, staff time and anticipated expenditures, resources and equipment, sample session outline and evaluation, selected bibliographies, and facilitators' guides to two program-related videotapes.
