Classroom Teachers and Sex-Role Stereotyping: Awarenesses, Attitudes, and Behaviors.
Jacko, Carol M.; And Others
To assess sex-role stereotyping awareness, attitudes, and classroom behaviors of teachers, a questionnaire was administered to 86 K-12 teachers in a rural area. Teachers were more aware of the influence of sex-role stereotyping in society than in classrooms, and they did not report extensive prior exposure to these issues. Their responses to attitudinal items indicated moderate to strong agreement that sex-role stereotyping influences students. Sex and political orientation affected attitude scores, as females and liberals generally indicated stronger attitudes. Teachers saw themselves as discouraging sex-role stereotyping more through modeling behaviors than by use of nonbiased curriculum materials. The results indicated a predisposition of teachers to discourage stereotyping and a need for explicit professional training. (Authors/JD)
