A Checklist for Evaluating Materials.
Women on Words and Images, Princeton, NJ.
Each section of the checklist lists questions which may be used to determine whether or not females are portrayed fairly in instructional materials. The sections, and some sample questions, are: (1) language--are non-parallel titles given for men and women? (Dr. Jones and Ellen); (2) occupational and social roles--is irrelevant information about a woman's family included in describing her role at work?; (3) omissions--are both male and female examples of achievement cited?; and (4) physical appearance--are females often described in terms of physical appearance, while men are described in terms of accomplishments or character? Sixteen questions are included which pertain specifically to audiovisual materials--illustrations, narrators' voices, and graphs and charts. (GDC)
