Teacher's Role: Identifying and Overcoming Sex Bias in Classroom Management. Participant Workbook.
Fair, Martha H.; And Others
This manual was developed for use of participants in 10 workshops that were designed to help teachers to identify and overcome sex and ethnic bias. The workshops provide a framework for consideration of the often subtle ways that bias may be an inherent element in textbooks, instructional materials, and teachers' attitudes and behaviors. Worksheets are provided for sessions on the topics of: (1) personal attitudes toward sex roles; (2) forms of sex bias in the classroom; (3) identifying sex bias in the classroom; (4) recognizing sexist and nonsexist practices and behaviors; (5) assessing sex bias in the classroom; (6) steps to be taken to ensure sex equity in the classroom; (7) identifying sex bias in instructional materials; (8) identifying racial-ethnic bias in instructional materials; (9) analyzing racial and sex bias in elementary school reading textbooks; and (10) distinguishing between sex- and race-biased and nonbiased materials. A summary of implementing the regulations of Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments is included in the appendixes. (JD)
