Project SEISMIC--Sex Equity in Schools: Modules in Careers. Report.
Project SEISMIC (Sex Equity in Schools: Modules in Careers) grew out of a federal mandate to the New York State Educational Department to reduce sex bias in its educational system. Under the project a kit was developed containing four modules for use in staff development, secondary school classrooms, and workshops with the business community. Included in each module are a stimulus videotape, workbook, leaders guide, and other print material. Module A and B are faculty guides for staff development on issues in sex equity and the legal framework of sex equity. Module C contains instructional methods and materials on personal development, career exploration, and communications, and Module D is a guide for encouraging sex equity in the business community. Field tests were conducted for each module and revisions made. (The report includes description of revisions based on field tests, and sample formats of each module are presented. An appendix constituting one-half of the report contains copies and findings of formative evaluation questionnaires concerning the format, content, and overall evaluation of each module.) (MN)
