Sex Equity in the Classroom--Teacher Strategies.
Jolly, Sue, Comp.; Forrester, Jeanne, Comp.
This manual is designed to teach teachers how to incorporate sex fair practices in their vocational education classrooms. The manual contains three sections. The first section, A Look at Where We Are, contains seven activities for teacher self-assessment of attitudes toward sex roles and sex fairness and a paradigm for assessing influencing factors relating to entry of students in areas nontraditional to their sex. Section 2, A Look at Where We Are Going, provides general suggestions for creating a sex-fair climate in any vocational classroom. It contains nine learning experiences on such subjects as the media, attitudes, career choice, self-concept, and language; attention getters, such as quotations and sentence completions that may be reproduced for student use; suggestions for audio-visuals; listening tips; and information on assertive behavior and consciousness raising. The final section, A Pathway for You, contains lessons and activities designed to provide specific learning experiences for students in the various service areas of vocational education (agriculture, distributive education, health occupations, home economics, handicapped, industrial arts, trade and industrial, and office occupations). Language and audio visual aids are suggested for establishment of classroom climate. These are followed by attention-getters and learning experiences, and some bulletin board ideas are included. For each subject, a sample plan of action is provided for the teacher. (KC)
