Again at the Looking Glass: Language Arts Curriculum Materials for Combatting Sex Stereotyping.
Feminists Northwest, Seattle, WA.
Classroom activities in language arts designed to make students aware of sex stereotyping are presented. Ninety-two learning games that encompass a wide array of language-arts skills are described. Topics covered in the various games and exercises are organized into four sections: (1) "Sexist Language: Watch What You Say!" introduces students to different forms of neuter pronouns, explores sexist definitions, investigates graffiti, and provides reading awareness activities; (2) "Autobiography: Free Lives" presents activities which emphasize women and their autobiographies; (3) "Nonsexist Literature: Sex Stereotyping, Women Writers" suggests ways in which students can become aware of sex-role stereotyping in literature and encourages writing of nonsexist material; and (4) "Sexism in the Media: Watch What You See!" encourages students and teachers to become aware of sex-discrimination messages from various media and suggests ways to work toward the elimination of sex-role stereotyping. Twelve criteria for evaluating educational material for sex-stereotyping characteristics are presented. A bibliography of books and other resource materials is provided for each section of the document. (Author/DB)
