Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
This world history equity module was developed as a teacher training resource for use by Alaska local school districts. The manual is divided to facilitate the development of district professional development activities as well as to provide specific examples for inclusion of women in the curriculum. Alaska has one of the strongest state sex discrimination laws in the United States. This manual is an attempt to aid school districts in meeting the requirement for sex equity training and increasing awareness of sex bias. A training workshop agenda would focus on the following: (1) Introductions; (2) Women's World, Men's World; (3) Thirty-nine Guests at The Dinner Table; (4) Sharing Ideas for Women's World History; and (5) Closure: Does it Matter That We Don't Teach Women's History? Biographies of 39 notable women and activities are included for this 3-hour workshop. (EH)
