Materials for Sex Equality Education for Use by Teachers, Parents, and Young People.
National Organization for Women, Champaign, IL. Greater Champaign Area Chapter.
These materials were compiled to help provide a better education for all children by increasing parents' and teachers' awareness of sexism and by providing new ideas and programs for helping people to overcome sex-role stereotyping in the schools. Included in the packet are: (1) a questionnaire designed to provoke thought before the beginning of a workshop on sexism; (2) suggestions for teaching with sexist materials already within the school system; (3) a list of classroom activities for students of any age or ability which can free students from stereotyped sexist attitudes: (4) lesson plans which encourage students to examine the novel (in this case, "Giants in the Earth" by O.E. Rolvaag) in terms of masculine and feminine roles; (5) a list of materials about women; (6) a selected reference list for nonsexist sex education; (7) a survey of media on the women's movement; (8) a list of feminist resources; (9) an annotated bibliography of nonsexist books for children; (10) an annotated bibliography of nonsexist books for junior and senior high school readers; and (11) an annotated bibliography on counseling girls for the future.
