A Qualitative Incremental Improvement to Reduce Sex Role Stereotyping on the Career Choices of Junior High Students. Final Project Performance Report.
Blum, Robert E.; Doyle, Linda
"The Now and the Future," a unit that integrates career development into existing eighth and ninth grade language arts programs, was revised to reduce sex-role stereotyping in career exploration experiences and was implemented in 24 schools. This project performance report describes the major activities involved in revising the curriculum materials and implementing the changes. Activities are divided into five categories: materials preparation, inservice preparation and delivery, unit implementation, evaluation, and dissemination. Changes and major problems that arose during the project are also discussed. A breakdown of project participants, sample teacher's guide materials, and a "Sex-Fair Treatment Checklist" used to revise the unit materials are included. (GW)
