Zhao, Peisheng; Prestigiacomo, Angela; Godzwon, Jennifer
This curriculum guide was developed to provide leadership information for educators of tech prep, school-to-work, and career development to develop programs that ensure equity for all students. The guide is divided into five sections. The Equity Awareness section offers a synopsis of the history and goals of equity efforts, ways to promote a general understanding of the issues, and suggestions to involve parents and the community. The Guidance and Counseling section provides strategies to prepare students to make sound career choices. The Staff Development section focuses on ways to involve all stakeholders in a process that must be ongoing. The Curriculum Development portion suggests ways of making changes that infuse equity into all aspects of the curriculum. Within each section are a variety of readings from many sources on the issue of equity in careers and career education. The last section provides additional resources, including the following: media catalogs, Internet resources for women's studies and address lists of the Tech-Prep Consortium, the School-to-Work Partnership, and New York State Teacher Centers.
