Guidelines to Achieve Sex Equity in Vocational Home Economics. Final Report.
Martin, Ruth E.
A project developed, field tested, and disseminated guidelines for elimination of sex bias/stereotyping of females and males in new and existing vocational educational curriculum materials, resources, and methods for home and family life teachers. During the literature review, existing instruments for achieving sex equity were identified. Tentative instruments were further explored. Advisory committee input was helpful in developing a preliminary model set of nonsexist curriculum guidelines. The guidelines were designed to assess the teaching environment and new and/or existing resources. (Appendixes include project materials and correspondence as well as a copy of Guidelines to Achieve Sex Equity in Home and Family Life Education.) The first part of the guidelines, Sex Equity in the Teaching Environment, has five sections that relate to the education of students: teaching behavior, student awareness, school/community, facilities and equipment, and occupational preparation. Responses to the items indicate strengths and weaknesses. Part 2, Guide for Review of Sex Equity in Resource Materials, can be used to review (1) textbooks, pamphlets, and other printed resources and (2) films, filmstrips, and other nonprint resources. This review assesses both role portrayal and language. (YLB)
