Project BORN FREE. Evaluation of the 1977 BORN FREE Summer Institute: A Workshop Model to Reduce Career-Related Sex-Role Stereotyping. Technical Report No. 5.
Keierleber, Dennis L.
BORN FREE is a collaborative effort of university-based counseling psychologists and field-site educators to reduce career-related sex stereotyping in 14 educational institutions, and to broaden the range of career options of women and men. The project focuses on the development of training modules (materials, workshops, and videotapes) for administrators, teachers, counselors, and parents at all educational levels. This report describes the evaluation of the two-week 1977 Summer Institute, a staff development training workshop for educators from the schools and colleges participating in Project BORN FREE. The workshop was designed to provide participants with attitudes, knowledge, and skills to reduce career-related sex stereotyping in their institutions, and to field-test preliminary forms of training materials and videotapes. The report concentrates on evaluation of the workshop model, with sections which describe its characteristics and participants, examine workshop strengths and weaknesses for further revision, and assess impact of the workshops upon the participants. Appendices include results of participant pre- and post-workshop assessment questionnaires and a copy of the workshop schedule. (Author/NRB)
