Eric.ed.gov – Non-Traditional School-to-Work Opportunities for Young Women. Resource Bulletin.

eric.ed.gov har udgivet:

This bulletin presents an overview of strategies that practitioners identify as methods of increasing young women’s access to and success in school-to-work programs in nontraditional occupations. These strategies are discussed: outreach to female students; career information and advising; training for teachers and counselors; math and science education; links with out-of-school programs; success skills; women mentors; parent involvement; and preparing employers and unions. The following institutional strategies are described: (1) including women in nontraditional occupations on advisory councils and hiring women instructors in nontraditional educational areas; (2) including workshops on nontraditional employment in training institutes and offering grant incentives for encouraging nontraditional careers in requests for proposals for local school-to-work initiatives; (3) purchasing textbooks, videotapes, and posters portraying women in nontraditional occupations; and (4) collecting data that link occupations and gender and designating nontraditional occupations for program development. An example of effective practice is provided: Manufacturing Technology Partnership in Flint, Michigan, which provides young women the opportunity to explore high-skill, high-wage careers in the manufacturing sector. A list of 2 publications and 14 organizations for additional information on programs and strategies includes brief summaries describing the organizations’ focus and activities. (YLB)

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
