Sex Stereotyping in Instructional Materials and Television: Awareness Kit.
This awareness kit provides information on the portrayals of women and men in two media--instructional materials and television; discusses how to evaluate and choose the best media materials from those that exist; recommends actions that will help to eliminate sex stereotyping in instructional materials and television; and suggests an approach to teaching children how to be aware of sex stereotyping in the media so they can better counter it themselves. Recognizing that sex is only one basis for stereotyping, ways of developing an awareness of other stereotypes in media messages are suggested whenever possible. References and a selected bibliography are included, as well as sample checklists and examples of guidelines. (Author/CMV)
