Liberating Our Children, Ourselves. A Handbook of Women's Studies Course Materials for Teacher Educators.
This document presents a rationale for the use of women's studies courses in teacher education programs and offers suggestions concerning possible topics to cover, books to read, and projects to do. It stresses that women's courses are ideally team taught and nonhierarchical, placing a strong emphasis on student involvement in the direction of the course. Units are suggested for a model course, "Sex Role and Education." Suggested topics include hiring and other employment practices, children's books, the socialization process, and changing discriminatory attitudes. Specific objectives are outlined in terms of what any college course should provide and what a women's course in particular should offer. Among the suggested learning projects are journals, individual experiments, and case studies of particular women. A number of ideas for research topics are suggested, along with possible ways of researching the topics. Suggested books are grouped under headings such as the History of the American Woman, Woman's Place, Women as a Minority Group, Sex Roles, and Counseling. A list of organizations dealing with women's rights issues is also included. (CD)
