As your learners prepare to enter the workforce, address some common stereotypes that may be limiting their professional goals.

They also respond to three typical stereotypes and write one of their own. Groups compare and discuss answers. An optional extension is included here: debunk myths about women in nontraditional jobs using the information provided. Get ready for a good discussion!
