Designed to be incorporated into career exploration programs in grades 6-9, this nontraditional occupations unit is a component in the Think Nontraditional Series curriculum and is prepared in a competency-based format. The reading level is approximately seventh grade. A course introduction section contains description and purpose of the curriculum package, listings of required materials (teacher references and audiovisual materials) and equipment, and the program master sequence. The next section is a discussion of program organization. Contents include a discussion of competency-based vocational education, instructions for use of the instructor's manual, ideas for addressing students with special needs, an overview of equal opportunity legislation, and an overview of a practical arts program. The third section is the instructor's guide to learning activities. It contains materials for the three modules corresponding to the three task assignment sheets on defining masculine/feminine, comparing traditional and nontraditional roles, and exploring nontraditional careers. Each module contains an instructor's guide sheet (objectives; attitudes and values to be developed; contents of task assignment sheet; checkout activities; listings of supplemental exercises, references, audiovisual materials; notes and suggestions for instruction); introductory activities; learning activities; answer keys; transparency masters; study guides; checkout activities; and the instructor's final checklist.
