We the People: Sex Bias in American History.
Campbell, Patricia B.; Katrin, Susan E.
The guide presents an instructional module on sex stereotyping in the social studies, particularly in U.S. history. Intended to be used with secondary students, the module was designed to be used as an independent miniunit or as a supplement to an existing course, and should take between one and two hours. It consists of a 30-minute tape, six transparency masters, four handout sheets, and a bibliography. The handout sheets present eight learning activity suggestions such as textbook critique, outside ethnic speakers, cultural differences exercises, and oral history projects; brief identification of 12 women in American history; 35 historical facts or concepts to use in checking textbooks for accuracy and bias; and an exercise for estimating the number of women holding various political offices. The six transparency masters offer illustrations for the text of the tape, with the topics of stereotyping, women in the work force, women and men in social studies texts, women in American history, voting, and women in politics. The bibliography lists 15 background materials. The tape may be obtained from the Education Development Center, 55 Chapel Street, Newton, Massachusetts, 02160. (CK)
