New Pioneers: A Program to Expand Sex Role Expectations in Elementary and Secondary Education. Seminar Leader's Handbook.
Smith, Amanda J.; And Others
This handbook is part of the New Pioneers training program designed to build trust between the sexes and expand roles for women and men. Based on the premise that barriers to equity often involve personal values, this handbook outlines 14 sessions to help educators explore and broaden their own sex-role perceptions and those of students. The seminars described were developed for use by teachers, counselors, administrators, Title IX and Sex Equity coordinators, vocational educators, teacher educators, and community groups. Seminars may be used individually or as a series of informal lectures or small-group sessions. Topics include "Hidden Curriculum,""How Sex Bias Hurts Men,""The Relationship Between Work and Family," and "Male and Female Cultures in the Workplace." Detailed lecture notes, discussion questions, activities, and an evaluation form are provided for each session. (Author/NRB)
