This teacher resource guide provides a model for dealing with sex role stereotypes in the elementary, intermediate, and secondary classroom. The major objective is to help students become conscious of sex role stereotyping in the world around them. Activities, open ended and inquiry oriented, involve students in analyzing history and contemporary issues and surveying media. A primary emphasis is on interdisciplinary studies, including elements of language arts, social studies, and history. The guide is arranged into three major sections by schools: elementary, intermediate, and secondary. Each of the three sections of resources is designed to fit a sequence of learning focusing on exploring sex role stereotypes, understanding sex role stereotypes, and applying the learnings to life situations. The teachers are provided with lesson plans, behavioral objectives, and learning concepts. Suggestive, rather than prescriptive, the materials are for teachers to adapt as they see fit. (Author/DE)
