Introducing PARMA (Promoting Alternative Role Models Affirmatively). Supplemental Handbook for DUSO (Developing Understanding of Self and Others, K-2).
King, Susan Crawford, Ed.; And Others
This booklet presents a program for promoting alternative role models as a supplement to the Developing Understandinq of Self and Others (DUSO) program for students in grades K-2. Shortcomings in the area of sexual stereotyping are said to undermine the DUSO program, so this handbook outlines a series of classroom techniques, exercises, and suggests materials that will help offer a more balanced view of sex roles. An overview of each DUSO teaching unit outlines the unit's deficiencies and makes recommendations for improvement. Appendices contain a collection of letters to and from the creator of the DUSO project, Dr. Don Dinkmeyer, and the American Guidance Services. Also included is a checklist for evaluating bias in textbooks and the National Council of Teachers of English Guidelines for nonsexist use of languaqe. A supplemental coloring book depicting balanced sex roles concludes the handbook. (APM)
