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 preschool educators and parents of preschool children. This training package provides activities and information for use in examining how sex-role stereotypes are learned from family, school, and community, and how sex-bias affects an individual's aspirations and choices. The facilitator manual contains a program description with sections on program objectives, training format and schedules, materials and equipment needed, participant characteristics, facilitator role, and conducting and evaluating training sessions. The section on Activity Directions contains a Program Activity Chart followed by detailed instructions for six hours of training modules for preschool personnel and a one-hour training module for parents. Personnel training modules include: (1) defining sex role stereotyping; (2) analyzing and evaluating instruction; and (3) looking at assumptions. The participant manual contains all readings, worksheets, and booklets for use during sessions. Audiovisuals are not included. (Author/NRB)
