Reducing Sex Stereotyping in Career Education: Some Promising Approaches to Persistent Problems.
Verheyden-Hilliard, Mary Ellen
This document reports the findings of a study undertaken to gather information about successful project approaches to the reduction of sex-role stereotyping in career education, K-12. (The study included for review all of the projects aimed at reducing sex-role stereotyping in career education which were directly funded by the Office of Career Education during its first three funding cycles, 1975-1977. Additional projects were selected for review from other federal and non-federal agencies.) The projects which are included in this document were selected because each offers in one or more of its approaches ideas of value to the practitioner and because analysis of their "problems," if there were any, provides insight on how to develop promising approaches to sex fair career education. This document is divided into three sections. Section 1 provides a state of the art review on the topic of sex equity and career education. Section 2 describes some general approaches to persistent problems, such as achieving equity in the classroom environment, involvement of parents, developing career education materials, and compiling a bibliography or resource list. The last section contains descriptions of thirty projects which can assist career educators in their attempts to reduce sex-role stereotyping. The description of each project includes the following elements: name and address of contact person; materials produced and/or available; abstract of project activities; setting; target population; and funding source.
