Staff Awareness: Racial, Socioeconomic, Sex Stereotypes Limit Career Potential.
Robertson, Marvin; And Others
The materials in the staff awareness program were developed to assist facilitators of career education inservice training. The purpose of the program is to increase the expectations of teachers toward the career potentials of all students regardless of their race, sex, ethnic background, or the socioeconomic status of the family. The program helps to identify staff stereotypes toward students and provides a tested intervention for changing staff behavior. The materials are presented in four sections: (1) a review of the literature, rationale and research base containing a conceptual framework, research data from three sites, and a summary of inservice outcomes found during program testing (26 pages); (2) administrator's guide, providing an overview of the total staff awareness program with information needed for decision making (11 pages); (3) guide for a local study, containing instrumentation and directions for studying local needs in order to adapt the inservice program products (60 pages); and (4) staff training, presenting an inservice program with implementation and evaluation materials and activities (81 pages).
