Responses to Sexism; Classroom Practices in Teaching English, 1976-1977.
Clapp, Ouida, Comp.; And Others
The articles in this issue of "Classroom Practices" were contributed by authors who believe that schools can and should play an important role in removing sexism from life in America. The book is divided into four thematic sections--developing awareness, seeking insights, units on sexism, and theory and resources--which present ideas and lessons adaptable for a variety of classrooms and instructional levels. While specific skill objectives are included for reading, writing, and language, the book is also intended to provide breadth through interdisciplinary study, to free students so that they can make viable choices, to stimulate new perceptions and thoughts, and to help bring students awareness of their values and attitudes.
