Ingram, Glee, Ed.; Boethel, Martha, Ed.
This comprehensive training program, Together We Can, involves a cooperative effort to reduce sex-role stereotyping and to expand options in education, work, and life styles for females and males. This program guide describes the philosophy, funding, and development of materials for the entire program, and may be used as a resource for trainers using any portion of the materials. The materials are designed to be directed by a facilitator who involves participants in group activities such as discussions, creative expression, role playing, media viewing, game playing, and problem solving. Instructions for leading activities are provided. An overview for initiating change is presented along with suggestions for obtaining training program support. A section on implementing the program includes suggestions for recruiting various audiences: (1) preschool parents and personnel; (2) parent, community, and volunteer groups; and (3) teachers, counselors, and administrators. Information, guidelines, and resources for dealing with sensitive and multicultural issues are included. A comprehensive annotated bibliography is also provided. Audiovisual materials are not included. (Author/NRB)
