Changing Roles in a Changing World. A Sourcebook for Home Economics Teachers.
Bomotti, Marty Jordan
This sourcebook is designed to help home economics teachers clarify their values regarding changing roles of women and men and sex stereotyping and to be able to present values clarification to their students. The sourcebook is designed first as a self-study for home economics teachers, and second, as a source for teaching ideas/techniques. The first section presents a rationale for why teachers should educate for changing roles. In the second section, the negative effects of stereotyping are discussed; an attempt is made to increase the teacher's awareness level with regard to his/her own stereotypical biases and attitudes; and ways are suggested to eliminate implicit and explicit sex-role stereotyping from the classroom. The third section contains a collection of teaching ideas to try in each of the content areas of home economics. Exercises and self-assessment sheets for both teacher and students are included. Also included is the report of sex stereotyping in a sample of home economics textbooks. (KC)
