Guidelines for Non-Sexist Vocational Materials. Final Report.
Stefan, Ann M.
The purpose of this project was to develop and validate guidelines which will ensure that vocational materials developed under Bureau of Occupational and Adult Education (BOAE) auspices are free of sex bias. The guidelines serve a three-fold purpose: (1) to provide a guide for development of any materials resulting from BOAE contracts or grants; (2) to provide a checklist for evaluation of any materials developed under BOAE contracts or grants as well as existing vocational education materials; (3) to serve as a guide for the creative use of existing curricula or other materials being used in vocational education classrooms. In order to meet this stated purpose the project scope included development of criteria for acceptability of guidelines and a material analysis instrument. A sampling of commercially and Office of Education produced materials was analyzed and preliminary guidelines were established as a direct result of the analysis. These preliminary guidelines were evaluated by Regional and State Directors of Vocational Education Departments, BOAE funding recipients and the BOAE Project Officer. Reviewer comments were analyzed by Women in Words and Images (WOWI) and a BOAE panel on August 4, 1977. Final guidelines were prepared reflecting this comprehensive review. (JH)
