ASPIRE Module 1: Sex-Role Socialization. Awareness of Sexual Prejudice is the Responsbility of Educators.
Livonia Public Schools, MI.
This first of four workshop modules in the Project ASPIRE (Awareness of Sexual Prejudice Is the Responsibility of Educators) series deals with understanding the development of sexual bias and individual attitudes toward sex-role stereotyping. (See Note about other modules.) The module helps work participants explore (1) the development of an individual's sexual identity, (2) their own sex-defined roles and attitudes as influenced by societal reinforcement, and (3) the values and expectations regarding their own sex roles. The module provides workshop facilitators with instructional guidelines, participant activities, and supplemental reading materials. Examples of the 22 participant activities include "Personal Unfoldment and Group Recall,""What's in a Word? Sexism Perhaps,""Fantasy," and "Values Voting." Each suggested activity is presented in this format: reference to objective, awareness level, purpose, logistics, materials, time required, process, and variations. It is recommended that at least two activities be chosen to treat each module objective. An appendix contains nine participant readings and two facilitator references to support specific activities.
