Kissam, Ed; Dorsey, Holda
This module, which may be used as the basis for a workshop or as a special topic unit in adult basic education or English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) courses, discusses women in nontraditional occupations. It is designed to help women consider the option of working in nontraditional occupations and to recognize that access to these jobs is competitive because they are well-paid. The module contains the following: an overview of the topic; the specific skills that the module emphasizes; and teaching points, learning activities, resources, and commercial textbooks. Resource sheets include self-assessment survey to determine whether the student is cut out for a nontraditional career and interest inventory. A sample lesson plan begins with a cover sheet with objectives (learners and context, room setup, to bring, to do ahead, media used, and steps). The lesson plan indicates time required, materials required, and teacher and student activities. Other contents include overhead transparency masters, handouts, presurvey, and postassessment. The objectives for this module are as follows: analyze jobs held by men and women; research skills, duties, responsibilities, and salaries; discuss whether women can fulfill those requirements; and debate in favor and against women in nontraditional jobs.
