Career Education Resource Kit: Educational Activities to Eliminate Sex Discrimination in Schools.
Miles Coll., Eutaw, AL. West Alabama Curriculum and Materials Resource Center.
Specifically designed for counselors as a vehicle for addressing the needs of females in rural areas, the field tested kit examines counselors' attitudes, resources, and techniques and suggests strategies for counteracting sexism in counseling programs. The kit addresses the specific needs and limitations characterizing rural areas: inaccessibility of area library facilities to research issues related to women's equity, lack of information on nonsexist resources, insufficient funds to purchase resources, and dual responsibilities of counselors. Part 1, "An Awareness Program for Counselors," can be used on an individual basis or in a group setting and includes a facilitator's guide for planning and implementing a workshop to provide training for counselors within the school to conduct an awareness program. Part 2, "A Guide for Establishing a Curriculum Resource Center," can be used as a vehicle for upgrading counseling and curriculum resources and outlines steps to establish a curriculum resource center. Part 3, "A Model Sex-Fair Counseling Program for Junior and Senior High School Students," is structured with career education objectives, providing activities for either sequential or independent use. Appendices contain 84 pages of supplemental materials including games, exercises, checklists, guidelines, inventories, explanations of laws and regulations, and sources of related materials and resources.
