Expanding Options. Coordinator's Guide.
Center for Studies of the Person, San Diego, CA.
This guide provides an overview of the Expanding Options workshops, a comprehensive sex equity training package for all segments of the K-12 educational community. Addressed to program coordinators, this booklet serves as a companion to eight Facilitator's Guides, each of which details workshops for a different section of the intended audience. The coordinator's guide briefly explains the contents of the facilitator's guides, and gives a history of the origins and development of Expanding Options which is intended: (1) to impart specific knowledge about sex equity in a number of areas; (2) to change behavior in such a way as to open more equal alternatives for both sexes in their personal and working lives; and (3) to bring attitudes about the appropriate nature of men and women into closer harmony. The guide describes instruments used throughout the program and gives advice on implementing the workshops. It then outlines a typical workshop session and enumerates the responsibilities of coordinators and facilitators. A bibliography of necessary instructional materials follows, and the final item in the booklet is a reproducibles calculation chart, a format for determining which readings, worksheets, transparencies, assessment instruments, and activity cards will need to be reproduced.
