Project SEISMIC (Sex Equity in Schools: Modules in Careers) Dissemination and Distribution.
A campaign was undertaken to disseminate and distribute the self-contained sex-equity kit for secondary school personnel developed in fiscal 1979 as part of Project SEISMIC (Sex Equity in Schools; Modules in Careers). (The developed kit, which consists of a staff development program, a set of curriculum lessons, and a community outreach manual to be used with accompanying stimulus videotapes, was developed to promote sex equity concepts among teachers, counselors, administrators, students, and employers.) The dissemination effort resulted in widespread introduction and access to materials for state educators with additional publicity nationwide. Hands-on experiential introduction of materials to 224 educators was accomplished through two conferences (held at Lake Luzerne, New York, and in New York City). The overall reaction to the conferences was very positive, with comments indicating appreciation of both the materials and the format of presentation. In addition, Project SEISMIC materials were introduced to groups serving New York and New Jersey and references to the project products will also appear in several national reference listings. Materials used in the dissemination effort are appended. (A related report describing the development of the sex equity kit is available separately--see note.) (MN)
