Becoming Sex Fair. The Tredyffrin/Easttown Program. A Comprehensive Model for Public School Districts. Stage Three Manual: Revising the Curriculum.
Calabrese, Marylyn E.; And Others
This manual, one of four related documents, is the last stage in a sex fairness program implemented in the Tredyffrin/Easttown School District (Pennsylvania). It outlines a practical process any district can use to make its curriculum sex-fair. The first part describes a series of workshop meetings in which members of the curriculum revision committee can learn how to identify and change bias in all parts of the curriculum. It begins with an overview of the process, spells out agendas and tasks for each workshop session, and supplies a list of resources. The second part of the manual provides sample sex-fair teaching materials for nearly every subject and grade, grouped under separate headings for elementary and secondary schools. (Author/LD)
