Teacher Behavior. Physical Educators for Equity. Module 6.
Chrietzberg, Agnes; And Others
In this module, the behavior of secondary school physical education teachers is examined in three areas: modeling, language, and class management and instruction. The objective of the module is to enable teachers to identify behaviors which perpetuate sex-role stereotyping and to select and use language which is not sex biased. Exercises accompany discussions on male and female teachers' behavior and how it serves as a role model for students. Criteria for selecting unbiased audiovisual resources that may provide good models for students are presented. Guidelines are provided for using unbiased language with examples given of sexist language and possible alternatives. Suggestions are offered for bias-free teacher behaviors in class management and instruction. (JD)
