Women's Studies for Teachers and Administrators: A Packet of Inservice Education Materials.
Froschl, Merle, Ed.; And Others
This packet of materials is designed for elementary and secondary teachers and administrators who are engaged in inservice education and interested in the movement to eliminate sexism in schools. Two major purposes of the packet are to help a school district start an inservice course on sexism in education and to show the potential of such a course for the development of a broader women's studies inservice program. The four major components of the packet are (1) a cassette containing information on new and significant research by and about women (not available from ERIC), (2) women's studies inservice course outlines, (3) samples of curriculum materials produced by teachers in inservice courses, and (4) an annotated listing of key resources. Titles of sample introductory courses are Sex Stereotyping; Sex Stereotyping in the Schools; Sexism in American Schools; The Hidden Curriculum: Discovering and Overcoming School Sexism; and Nonsexist Education: Strategies and Change. Titles for specialized courses in particular disciplines are Women and the Law; Women in U.S. History; and Women in Literature. Samples of elementary level curriculum materials are on Fairy Tales and on Sexist Myth Explosion for Young Children; sample secondary level materials are on The Growth of Labor Unions in America: Lowell, Massachusetts and on Physical Education. The selective list of resource organizations and groups and a list of Feminist Press publications conclude the document. (ND)
