Equality in Science: Formula for Changing Sex Bias. Project on Sex Stereotyping in Education.
Georgia State Univ., Atlanta.
This module consists of 4 handouts and 4 transparency masters to be used with a 35-minute tape on sex stereotyping and its effect on science and science education. The handouts are a list of women in modern science, a list of activities, an activity called the grading game in which students pretend they are teachers and list the names and grades of 4 students in each of 4 classes (English, math, science, and home economics), and a bibliography. The transparencies are: (1) a definition of stereotyping and a list of stereotypic descriptions for discussion; (2) an illustration of the scientific method; (3) a chart of the percentage of male and female workers in science-related occupations; and (4) an illustration of intellectual sex differences during childhood and adolescence.
