Eliminating Sexism: Rewriting the Scripts. An Informational Guide to Sex Stereotyping, Sex Bias and Sex Discrimination. Instructor's Manual.
Etheridge, Rose M.; Rice, Eric
Part of a series devoted to identifying and evaluating strategies which vocational education administrators and instructors can use at the secondary student, teacher, or administrator level to eliminate sex stereotyping and sex bias in vocational education programs, this manual provides teachers with instructional materials concerning the current status of men and women in several areas of life. Designed for individualized student instruction, the six units included cover the following topics: (1) physical and behavioral differences between men and women; (2) the meanings of stereotyping, discrimination, and sexism; (3) sex bias, stereotyping, and discrimination in the work force, using statistical data to show the impact of these factors; (4) sex stereotyping and minority groups, emphasizing the double discrimination that minority women face; (5) sex stereotyping in school, examining the stereotyped behavior, attitudes, and values that schools either teach or reinforce; and (6) the illegality of sex discrimination. Each unit is introduced by materials intended for the teacher's use: the unit's educational aims, a general introduction, specific educational objectives, an abstract, suggestions for teaching preparation, key concepts, additional student activities, learning time required, evaluation methods, and additional reference sources. The student materials in each unit are formatted as follows: the unit's objectives, small informative segments including self-check questions with answers, and a post-test. (ELG)
