Expanding Options. Facilitator's Guide--Parent Workshop.
Center for Studies of the Person, San Diego, CA.
This guide presents procedures and supporting materials for conducting a training workshop on sex equity. Targeted at parents of elementary students, the workshop is intended to provide its participants with the background awareness and knowledge required to promote sex equity in their children's schools. The guide describes the content, process, and sequential learning experiences for six sessions. Sessions 1, 2, and 3 are organized to increase awareness of sexism and sex-role stereotyping and to provide a common vocabulary. Session 4 deals with Title IX, and examines what nonsexist education might be. Session 5 focuses on developing assertiveness skills to be utilized during Session 6, which deals with planning for change. In addition to describing session-by-session goals and procedures, this guide contains mini-lectures, activity guides, handout materials (assessment instruments, activity cards, readings, and worksheets), and transparency masters.
