Birk, Janice M.; Colby, Pamela G.
This learning module, one in a series of competency-based guidance program training packages focusing upon professional and paraprofessional competencies of guidance personnel, deals with providing career guidance to girls and women. Addressed in the module are the following topics: society's influence on shaping differential roles and behaviors for males and females, ways in which myths and lack of correct information perpetuate limited options for females in the world of work, methods for evaluating the sex fairness of career information based on its content and illustrations, strategies for facilitating girls' and women's ability to choose from a wide spectrum of career options, and the implications of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 for a community-based career guidance program. The module consists of readings and learning experiences covering these five topics. Each learning experience contains some or all of the following: an overview, a competency statement, a learning objective, one or more individual learning activities, an individual feedback exercise, one or more group activities, and a facilitator's outline for use in directing the group activities. Concluding the module are a participant self-assessment questionnaire, a trainer's assessment questionnaire, a checklist of performance indicators, a list of references, and an annotated list of suggested additional resources.
