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 packet consists of facilitator and participant manuals designed for use with elementary and secondary school teachers and counselors. The training kit is designed to raise awareness of the changing roles of women and men and to explore ways in which schools can help expand role options. The facilitator manual contains a program description with sections on program objectives, training schedules, materials and equipment needed, participant characteristics, facilitator role, training session preparation, and conducting and evaluating training. The section on Activity Directions contains a Program Activity Chart followed by detailed instructions for four training modules totaling 16 hours: (1) sex-role stereotyping, (2) changing roles, (3) school's role in change, and (4) what facilitators can do. The participant manual contains materials and work pages needed for the module workshops as well as resources and follow-up exercises, some of which are designed for teachers to use with their students. Audiovisual materials are not included. (Author/NRB)
