ASPIRE (Awareness of Sexual Prejudice Is the Responsibility of Educators) Module 3: Evaluating Instructional Materials.
Livonia Public Schools, MI.
This third of four workshop modules in the Project ASPIRE (Awareness of Sexual Prejudice is the Responsibility of Educators) series deals with analyzing and developing procedures for dealing with sexual stereotypes and biases reflected in learning and counseling materials with the schools. (See Note about other modules.) The module helps workshop participants (1) develop criteria for evaluating instructional and counseling materials in terms of sexual and cultural bias, (2) examine currently used materials to determine if they include evidence of bias, (3) examine current procedures and criteria for the selection of counseling and instructional materials, (4) examine the flexibility of the curriculum in order to determine the potential for change, and (5) develop supplemental activities to assist in working with biased instructional materials. The module provides workshop facilitators with instruction guidelines, participant activities, and supplemental reading materials. Examples of the fourteen participant activities include "Who's Who?""Developing Criteria,""Create a Sex-Fair Story," and "Differential Treatment." Each suggested activity is presented in this format: reference to objective, awareness level, purpose, logistics, materials, time required, and process (and variations). It is recommended that at least two activities be chosen to treat each module objective. An appendix contains seven readings to support specific activities. (YLB)
