Researching Sex Bias in the Classroom.
Donlan, Dan
This paper outlines five methods of research on sex bias in the classroom: one-time survey, one class/one treatment, two class/two treatment, one class/random assignment to treatment, and analysis of differentiated effect. It shows how each method could be used in attempting to measure the effect of a unit on Norma Klein's "Mom, the Wolfman and Me"; gives hypothetical results, as if each method had been used; and indicates how these results might be interpreted. The paper concludes by noting that the study of sexism, inherent in language and literature, should be a vital part of the English curriculum. (TJ)
