Chart Your Course. Career Planning for Young Women.
This guide was written to help young women find their place in the world and move toward that place. Organized in two parts, the manual includes directions for the instructor and handouts for students (in eighth and ninth grade). Part 1 contains descriptions of activities and suggestions for using the activities with small groups of young women, in addition to directions for individual work. Some of the activities include writing an autobiography, rating interests, listing skills, discussing work values, learning about job clusters and specific jobs, visualizing oneself in the world of work, practicing decision-making skills, learning assertiveness, setting goals, planning a career, and choosing high school courses. Part 2 contains sample agendas for using the activities during a 2- to 5-day concentrated workshop or throughout a semester. (Part 2 concludes with an annotated list of suggested materials citing some sex-fair career guidance computer programs and selected career guidance books. This manual may be used in tandem with a companion guide entitled "Building Partnerships. Career Exploration in the Workplace." (KC)
