The Teacher's Role. Implementing Title IX and Attaining Sex Equity: A Workshop Package for Elementary-Secondary Educators. Outline and Participants' Materials for Application Sessions for Teachers.
McCune, Shirley; And Others
This 2-day workshop package was developed to address the needs of elementary and secondary school teachers with regard to Title IX and sex equity. The role of elementary and secondary school teachers in reinforcing sex fairness and in eliminating sex bias in teacher education curricula and in the classroom is the focus of the workshop. The workshop begins with a consideration of the need and rationale for Title IX. Title IX regulations and grievance procedures are reviewed, followed by an examination of the application of the Title IX regulations and sex equity principles to the job functions of various groups of education personnel. Also presented are an overview of the change process and an opportunity for participant action planning related to Title IX compliance and the achievement of sex equity. Specifications of the population, objectives, and instructional materials are outlined for each of the workshop's two sessions. The topic of the first session is identifying and overcoming sex bias in classroom management. Discussions are presented on assessing sex bias in the classroom and in instructional procedures. The session also covers the subject of the requirements of Title IX as applied to the classroom situation and the development of action steps which may be taken to ensure nonbiased teaching. The second session is devoted to identifying and overcoming bias in instructional materials. A discussion is given of the origins of bias and stereotyping. Guidelines are also presented on identifying the forms of bias in instructional materials and on analyzing their contents. An overview is provided for identifying biased, sex- and race-fair, and sex- and race-affirmative materials. Sample worksheets and activity forms are included in the workbook. (JD)
