Sex Stereotyping, Bias, and Discrimination in the World of Work: A Workbook. Instructor's Manual.
Rice, Eric; And Others
Part of a series devoted to identifying and evaluating strategies which vocational education administrators and instructors can use at the secondary student, teacher, or administrator level to eliminate sex stereotyping and sex bias in vocational education programs, this workbook provides information and activities that require students to gather and analyze data and draw conclusions about the world of work, and particularly about the effects of sex discrimination, stereotyping, and bias. Intended for use in the classroom, the four instructional units cover the following topics: work, beliefs about working men and women, looking for a job, and on the job. Within these topics, the various issues that are discussed include salaries, legal rights, occupational sex stereotyping, and the definition of work. Each unit is introduced by materials intended for the teacher's use: (1) a general introduction, (2) specific objectives, (3) specific concepts, (4) teaching suggestions, (5) evaluation methods, and (6) directions about specific activities. The student materials include an introduction explaining background information on the topic and directions for the exercises as well as reference sources. These activities can be used by the students individually or in groups. A chart in the teacher's introduction rates all the activities according to their difficulty and importance and indicates the prerequisites required. (ELG)
