Reading and Sex Role Identification: Exercises for Teacher and Students.
Sheridan, E. Marcia
This document discusses sex role stereotyping in classrooms, reading materials, and standardized tests and examines the implications of sexism in reading and communication skills classrooms. A section for teachers, intended for preservice or inservice sessions, contains materials, objectives, and procedures for general discussion on values clarification and includes a textbook analysis worksheet, a classroom environment appraisal, and a school inventory form. Exercises for elementary students examine sex stereotyping in student attitudes toward jobs, roles, and careers. Students are also asked to evaluate textbooks and television programs. Junior and senior high school students are directed to consider their personal attitudes, opinions, and values through a series of written exercises aimed at recognition of sexism in advertising, on television, and in newspapers. A bibliography on the topic of sexism is appended. (MAI)
