Alternative Support Systems for Nontraditional Students in Vocational Education. Revised.
Foster, Jan; Simonds, Betty
This manual has been developed to assist school districts in Michigan in their efforts to retain students who have made vocational education choices that are nontraditional for their sex. The manual provides school districts with four alternative ways of supporting nontraditional vocational education students: (1) nontraditional student club; (2) team support system; (3) peer counseling; and (4) adult mentors and nontraditional role models. Each of these four approaches is introduced by an abstract and requirements for implementing the activity. All materials for developing the approach follow the introductory page. Contains 10 references. (KC)
