This publication is designed to assist elementary and secondary schools in strengthening instruction by identifying and eliminating sexual stereotyping in educational materials. The model illustrates some of the ways in which curriculum and instructional materials may be developing sex stereotyping, offers suggestions for avoiding or correcting the situation, and fosters the realization that fuel for sex bias exists. Chapters are as follows: "Description of Model,""Guidelines for Reviewers,""Plan of Action,""The Language of Sexism,""Stereotyping,""Balance vs. Imbalance," and "What Should Be Done about Biased Instructional Materials." Also included are excerpts from the guidelines of three publishers (Ginn and Company; Holt, Rinehart and Winston; and Scott, Foresman and Company) and a bibliography. (JM)
