Competence Is for Everyone: Gender and the Conditions of Learning. Collected Readings.
Kent, Martha Whalen, Ed.
This manual, part of the "Competence Is for Everyone" curriculum, helps students examine the process of making appraisals of people and how appraisals can limit learning and career opportunities when based on sex or race. The curriculum can be used by intermediate, secondary, and junior college teachers and students. This anthology, a collection of background readings for the curriculum, explores the socialization of females and males by parents and schools; the presentation of males and females in the media and in textbooks; the nature of sex differences; and the processes underlying the acquisition of gender roles.
