The Community's Role. Implementing Title IX and Attaining Sex Equity: A Workshop Package for Elementary-Secondary Educators. Outline and Participants' Materials for Application Sessions for Community Group Members.
McCune, Shirley; Matthews, Martha
This 2-day workshop package was developed to address the needs of members of community groups, parents, and other persons not employed by school systems with regard to Title IX and sex equity. The role of the community in reinforcing sex fairness and eliminating sex bias in teacher education curricula and in the classroom is the focus of this workshop. The workshop begins with a consideration of the need and rationale for Title IX. Title IX regulations and the 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 first session focuses upon building a knowledge base for bringing about changes in attitudes. Discussions are included on what concerned citizens can do to bring about community action and changes in schools to help eliminate sex bias and stereotyping. A review is made of ways in which community involvement serves schools and of techniques for assessing and increasing citizens' knowledge base and skills in influencing schools for change. The second session concentrates upon building skills for bringing about change. Establishing change goals and analyzing action alternatives are discussed as well as action planning and implementation of change. Sample worksheets and activity forms are included in the workbook.
