American Indian and Alaska Native Career Development Youth Manual: Leader's Guide.
Arviso-One Feather, Vivian; Whiteman, Henrietta
A companion to a manual for students, this leader's handbook provides specific suggestions for guiding students through a series of learning activities that are designed to help them develop career plans by identifying their interests and setting goals. There are five study units under the two major headings of "You and Your Choices" and "Your Choices and Careers." Each unit contains a statement of purpose, a brief description of the unit, the background information also found in the student manual, an estimate of the time needed for completing the learning activities for the unit, and suggestions for using each activity. References are included for related books, audio-visual materials, and vocational interest measures. The guide focuses on ways to help American Indian students understand themselves, their cultural heritage, and their importance to the Indian community. Emphasis is placed on the ultimate benefits to the Indian community of programs that develop the career potential of Indian youth. (JHZ)
