Rainbow Shave Ice, Crackseed, and Other Ono Stuff. Sex Equity Goodies for the Classroom. EGO Project. Equal Goals in Occupations.
Calabrese, Anthony, Comp.; And Others
This activity guide was designed to supplement the Equal Goals in Occupations (EGO) sourcebook that was developed in 1978 by a team of teachers in the Central School District of the Hawaii State Department of Education. It contains activities that teachers (especially in Hawaii) can use to reduce the prevailing sex role stereotypes and biases held by students. The guide is organized into five chapters. The first chapter provides background information about sex role stereotypes in order to make teachers aware of the effects of stereotypes and the reasons that they should attempt to eliminate them in their classrooms. In the second chapter, activities are provided to increase students' awareness of the basic issues in sex bias and stereotyping, while the third chapter includes additional activities designed to enable students to examine their biases and stereotypes. The fourth chapter presents additional activities that can be used to help students to deepen their knowledge of the many vocational opportunities available to them, especially those nontraditional for their sex. Finally, the last chapter contains additional background materials for teachers and students along with materials that can be used for assessment and visual aids. (KC)
