Time for a change : a woman's guide to nontraditional occupations by Constance Drake Cauley( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide for women interested in nontraditional occupations (NTOs) describes nontraditional occupations and offers suggestions for deciding whether an nto is appropriate for the individual. The need for women in NTOs is first addressed. Rewards are considered, and a checklist is provided to test for readiness to choose an nto. These myths regarding women in NTOs are described: certain jobs are only for men or women, women lack strength for "men's work," women lack temperament for "men's work," women cause disruptive sexual relationships on worksite, and women cause employers additional expense. Real barriers to success in an nto are outlined--both internal (sex stereotyping, lack of self-confidence, age, concern for femininity) and external (finances; child care; vocational/academic preparation; social attitudes; harassment, isolation, and discrimination). Some general areas of the traditionally male occupations are overviewed, including engineering and science technology, industrial production, mechanics and repairer occupations, and construction trades. Sketches of sample jobs in each area cover job duties, job environment, required interests and abilities, training needed for entry-level position, occupational outlook, benefits and advancement opportunities, average national starting salaries, and some similar jobs. Suggestions are offered for finding training and succeeding in training or on the job. (Ylb)

5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A range of state policies, practices, and services are described. Computer applications are listed and categorized as using the computer either as teacher, tool, object to be taught, or management tool. Ways to fit computers into school practice are also described, including the location of computers in relation to school use. Additional topics include the types of information needed to begin a program; information sources; hardware; software/courseware; staff development programs; and program evaluation criteria. An appendix contains a decision model for microcomputer purchasing; a reference list of periodicals, software review sources, bibliographies, books, and associations; sample software evaluation forms; a partial list of northeast user groups; a partial list of software suppliers; and charts from an August 1981 survey of instructional computer use in public schools in the New York State capital district.

Attention is given to arranging upgrading courses for women in industry and recruiting black women. Chapter 5 offers career exploration techniques. Occupational counseling is discussed.

Exploring arts and humanities careers in the community : a program planning guide by Ellen Andrews( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of a series of 11 arts and humanities career exploration resource guides for grade 7-12 teachers, counselors, and students, this program planning guide suggests several curriculum models for out-of-school programs to augment traditional school courses. Chapter 1 introduces the guide and suggests its uses for administrators, teachers, and counselors. Chapter 2 describes a method for conducting a preliminary survey of community resources (organizations and people available to help the schools by providing sites for various experiences). Chapter 3 describes curriculum models. Some are short-term activities which mainly help students explore arts and humanities careers, E.G., interviewing workers, shadowing workers, going on field trips, and private study. Models for long-term experiences include independent study or volunteer project, teacher aids and student tutors, internship, and apprenticeship. The following components are presented for each curriculum model: General information (design, grade level, credit/salary, time commitment), description, objectives and student activities, and supplementary resources. Chapter 4 offers planning and coordinating suggestions in such areas as funding, legal considerations, union relationship, recruiting and preparing students, and monitoring and evaluating programs for out-of-school experiences. Concluding the chapter are brief descriptions of several programs which link arts and humanities workers with the school system. Appendixes list possible community sites for out-of-school programs, selected unions involved in arts and humanities occupations, and State arts councils which award financial grants to school systems and can also help educators with limited local sites for out-of-school programs get in touch with appropriate workers in other communities who could assist in a program.
