Implementing Sex Equity in Vocational Education.
This publication contains five teaching units for implementing sex equity into vocational education. The units, prepared for preservice or inservice teacher education courses, can be adapted to various teacher situations. Units cover sex equity legislation and definitions; facts and figures about women in the workforce; methods of recruiting male and female students into nontraditional educational programs; remedying sex discrimination in actions, language, teaching practices, curriculum, and facilities; and assisting students to obtain sex-fair placement in jobs. There are generally eight sections to each unit, with each section corresponding to a purpose within the total unit. The sections include the unit title, purpose, and specific objectives; suggested activities and instructional materials; information sheet; transparency masters; assignment sheets; answers to assignment sheets; tests; and answers to test. The units also can be used by teachers with secondary or postsecondary students, with some adaptations. (KC)
