Analysis of Teacher Education's Need for Materials and Training Related to Sex Equity. Final Report.
Gollnick, Donna M.; And Others
A study was made to ascertain the needs of teacher educators for materials and training related to sex equity and to identify the resources currently being used. An analysis of textbooks generally used by most preservice education majors revealed widespread sex bias. It was found that there is a dearth of materials on sex equity readily available for use by teacher educators for preservice or graduate programs. The few materials prepared specifically for aspects of teacher education programs were most likely from Women's Educational Equity Act projects. The majority of materials produced for teacher education have been directed at an inservice audience; very little exists for preservice programs. A survey of members of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education revealed that few courses focusing on women are offered to teacher education students as part of their professional training. An outline is presented of specific sex equity needs for teacher education, and recommendations are made on how to meet these needs. (JD)
