Neikirk, Mary; Leslie, Mary Dee
This module, intended for use either as part of a self-study program or in a workshop, is designed to aid secondary school physical education teachers to identify effects of sex-role stereotyping on girls, boys, men, and women and to recognize examples of sex-role stereotyping in three areas of physical education: achievement, self-esteem, and physical well-being. Discussions are presented on the general effects of sex-role stereotyping on academic potential, social-emotional qualities, and occupational potential. Exercises accompany the discussions on the effects of sex-role stereotyping in physical education. A bibliography is included. (JD)
