Stamp Out Sexism: A Texas Awareness Project. Facilitator Manual. Workshop Materials for Vocational Homemaking Teachers.
Griffin, Wilma P.; Kelly, Joan M.
This workshop facilitator manual was developed for use in conducting a sexism-awareness workshop for home economic teachers. Section 1 provides an introduction to the manual, objectives of the workshop, format of the manual, and a suggested time schedule and group size for each activity. The second section provides instructions for conducting the workshop activities: introductory slide presentation of sex bias, five group activities, and administration of three assessment instruments. The five activities are "The Exchange" (meet other members of the subgroup and discuss media presentation), "A Closer Look" (describe and compare the way females, males, and healthy well-adjusted adults are perceived), "Taking Stock" (identify and examine personal attitudes and the attitudes of others relating to the role of men and women), "What a Difference a Word Makes" (identify personal sex bias and those biases projected in textbooks and other education resources), and "Building Our Image" (identify class behaviors that perpetrate, minimize or eliminate sex bias and stereotyping). Copies of activity handouts and assessment instruments are provided in section 3. The three instruments used are sexism awareness instrument, Current Behavior Practices Questionnaire, and Personal Commitment. (Also available is the project final report, CE 018 811.) (JH)
