Abstract: This curriculum guide provides instructional materials that offer suggestions and strategies to change mindsets and remove barriers in order to pave the way for a gender-equitable, technically trained work force. A DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) chart forms the basis for the task performance guides provided for five audiences: students, educators, business/industry/labor community, policy makers, and parents. Not every duty and task on the chart pertains to every audience. Each task performance guide consists of units that include introduction, performance objectives, suggested implementation strategies, evaluations, resources, and special notes. These units are grouped under the duty to which they pertain. The curriculum consists of these 11 duties: eliminate internal barriers; eliminate sex-role stereotyping; provide survival skills for trade and technical women and men; create support systems; eradicate external barriers; remove discriminatory behavior at all levels in schools and the workplace (coworkers/students); provide educator training; deliver career education and exploration; deliver workplace literacy skills; revise policies and regulations; and comply with government regulations. Appendixes include a compilation of handouts, newspaper articles, programs, agendas, events, etc., mostly related to tasks (suggested tasks are typed on each copy) related to the student audience section of the document; 170 curricula, guides, handbooks, and manuals; 132 videos, cassettes, disks; 9 profiles, tests, and posters; and 29 agencies, associations, and unions. Contains a bibliography listing 280 items. (YLB)
