This workbook presents materials for a Nontraditional Options Workshop designed to introduce women to predominantly male vocational programs and careers. The workshop provides career awareness, vocational information, and hands-on exploration of nontraditional programs offered at Blackhawk Technical College (BTC), Wisconsin. Introductory materials include information on the sex equity project, gender equity, and gender equity legislation in vocational education; an introduction to BTC; and an introduction to sex equity, including 11 handouts/resources. Materials for the three components of the 36-hour workshop follow. The survey component introduces technical concepts and skills, such as print reading, basic electricity, measurements, and tool usage. Materials provided include an overview, objectives, goals of the survey, a course outline, descriptions of five sessions, and handouts. The math component (which includes an instructor's guide for a six-session workshop) assesses current math skills, teaches math concepts and practical applications of math, and helps participants to understand math anxiety. In addition, this section contains an attitude survey; information on math anxiety; suggestions for studying math, real-life math problems; a narrative and problems on fractions, word problems, percents, and calculators; and an answer key. An experiential nontraditional component provides hands-on exploration of nontraditional programs at BTC. Instructional materials include program descriptions with responsibilities, job potential, and related jobs. Workshop activities are suggested. (YLB)
