Engelbrecht, Jo Ann; And Others
This manual is intended to assist personnel at the local level in achieving equity in vocational education. It presents a planning model for sex equity programs and provides information about nontraditional careers, suggested strategies for informing students about nontraditional careers, and resources useful in developing a program to inform students about nontraditional careers. Chapter I presents the rationale for providing individuals with information about nontraditional careers. Chapter II discusses the five phases in the awareness process through which educators move in their progress toward sex-fair teaching. Chapter III contains the planning model for sex equity programs. It addresses needs assessment, administrative support, identification of areas of impact, and obtaining resources. Chapter IV highlights strategies for administrators, counselors, and teachers to use to increase student awareness and knowledge of nontraditional options. Chapter V lists sources of equity and nontraditional materials, briefly describes selected equity materials, lists selected media available in the area, and contains a glossary of terms. Chapter VI lists projects in equity and nontraditional careers in Texas and names, addresses, and telephone numbers of equal access or equity coordinators of each state. Appendixes include a table of estimated annual salaries of 148 occupations and sample materials field-tested by teachers. (YLB)
