As your learners prepare to enter the workforce, address some common stereotypes that may be limiting their professional goals. The class brainstorms gender-stereotyped careers, exploring where those ideas originate. They complete a job checklist survey, indicating which gender most traditionally works in 32 fields. 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!
