Male/Female Communication: An Instructional Unit.
Morse, Ben W.; Beebe, Steven A.
This paper presents four instructional units and a list of print and nonprint resources available to instructors who want to teach students about the differences and erroneous stereotypes associated with sex roles in male/female communication. The first unit contains information pertinent to sex-role development and the socialization process, and is essentially a review of how stereotypic differences evolve. The remaining units cover the following topics: communication differences, both verbal and nonverbal; communication contexts, including marriage and family communication and organizational communication; and managing male/female communication differences through conflict management, assertiveness as a management strategy, and androgyny as a management strategy.
