Project: Strategies for Sex Fairness. Is My Textbook Limiting Me in Considering Future Roles?
Mook, Corena; Legg, Marilyn
One of a series of instructional packets to aid schools in reducing sex stereotyping, this guide for teachers (junior high and above) is designed to encourage students to think through how textbooks and educational materials send out hidden messages that attempt to shape their perceptions of acceptable roles for men and women. It was developed to present information and facilitate discussion in a forty-to-fifty-minute class period. Contents include an instructor's script (material to be presented), six transparency masters, and a discussion guide. The following are examples of topics covered: occupations should be shown as open to all; males and females should be shown able to do a variety of home tasks; and language should not reflect limited options. The packet, like others in the series, can be used alone, in combination with other packets, or to supplement existing instructional units. (JT)
