Improving Sex Equity in Career and Vocational Classrooms.
This booklet contains curriculum guidelines and checklists designed to assist vocational educators in identifying sex bias, sex role stereotyping, and sex discrimination. The first section provides suggestions made by Ohio vocational educators for providing for sex equity in vocational programs. Following specific suggestions for recruitment, facility, placement, and program content, suggestions and comments specific to program areas of study are set forth. The second section lists criteria for sex-fair materials and then provides guidelines and checklists for assessment of curriculum materials for sex equity on four bases: language, roles, omissions, and audio-visual materials. Several consciousness-raising activities for the classroom are listed in the third section, which may be helpful to teachers, counselors, and students in becoming aware of sex bias. The final section discusses use of already-existing material lacking sex fairness. (YLB)
