Writing at Work: Women in Nontraditional Careers in Their Own Words

45.00

Includes biographies of the 19 women working in nontraditional careers who tell their stories in the 15-minute DVD Writing at Work: Women in Nontraditional Careers in Their Own Words. Writing is a crucial part of many nontraditional careers. As a police detective says, "The ability to communicate with people is absolutely the most critical part of the job. You have to know how to reach out into other people's worlds, across the barrier that separates you from them. You have to know how to write and to put your thoughts down into words that will build a case that's good enough and strong enough to go to court and to win. Because even if you make a good arrest, if you can't put that arrest down on paper in a coherent manner, that builds all of the elements of the case into the report, the case isn't going to go anywhere. The district attorney is going to drop it, the detective's going to drop it. They will plea bargain it down, because they can't possibly take it to court." The resource guide includes the full script of the DVD, as well as viewing notes and discussion questions for the DVD. There is also a section called Discussion Starters and Discussion Questions designed to stimulate more general discussions about work and nontraditional careers.

Resource Guide has 114 pages.
