Handbook of Procedures for Implementing a Sex Equity Workshop: Pathway to Awareness.
Hubek, June, Comp.
Materials in this handbook of procedures for implementing a sex equity workshop consist of six steps intended for adaptation in educational meetings, classrooms, and community gatherings. Outlined in the first section on the need for eliminating sex role stereotyping are legislative and economic mandates for sex equity and goals for inservice educators. Workshop steering committee and participant duties are listed in section 2. Organizational guidelines and a list of possible consultants constitute the third section on workshop design. A sample agenda is presented in section 4. Provided in section 5 are nine sample activities on attitudes toward life roles, role expectations, role expectations for elementary students, attitudes towards women's roles, sexist attitudes, perceived male stereotypes, linguistics, and curriculum bias. A sample action plan and suggestions for writing such a plan are set forth in section 6. A bibliography follows. Appendixes constituting one third of the handbook contain sex role myths and realities, the text of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title IX questions and answers, and guidelines for assessing sex bias and sex fairness in career interest inventories.
