Women on Words and Images, Princeton, NJ.
A 4-part summary of research on career education materials comprises this report. First, it provides some documentation on the extent to which sex-role stereotyping was found in an analysis of more than 80 randomly selected K-12 and post-secondary career education materials. Second, the report offers general advice to teachers and counselors for detecting and counteracting sexism in those materials currently in classroom use. Third, it presents a teacher/counselor activity checklist for enriching career opportunity awareness. Finally, the report lists organizations and products which are considered nonsexist sources and resources. A tabulation of the occupations derived from the materials studied is appended. (TA)
