Sex Equity in Career Education (K-8). Resource Guide.
Southeastern Massachusetts Univ., North Dartmouth. Div. of Continuing Studies and Special Programs.
Pursuing the overall goal to reduce sex stereotyping in vocational education and career choice, this resource guide presents classroom activities to encourage nonsexist career exploration. Introductory comments include an overview of research, myths, and eventual consequences of statistics regarding sex stereotyping, as presented during an institute designed to help teachers, counselors, and school administrators examine the role of men and women in the work force in 1979 and to promote sex-affirmative career planning. A product of the institute, the guide presents a series of eight career education objectives with corresponding sex equity objectives. Objectives relate to self-awareness, educational awareness, career awareness, economic awareness, decision-making skills, skill awareness, employability skills, and appreciation and attitudes. Following these are summaries of activities developed from the Southeastern Massachusetts University Title IV Program which address career education and sex equity goals, listed sequentially by grade level (K-8). Each activity includes objectives, procedures, materials needed, and resources. A resource list for the guide is appended. (FP)
