The Teacher Educator's Role. Implementing Title IX and Attaining Sex Equity: A Workshop Package for Postsecondary Educators. Outline and Participants' Materials for Application Sessions for Teacher Educators.
Sadker, Myra; Sadker, David
This 2-day workshop package was developed to address the needs of teacher educators with regard to Title IX and sex equity. The role of teacher educators 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 reviewd, 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 is 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 addresses the subject of preparing teachers to analyze and alleviate sex bias in instructional materials. The session includes discussions on assessing elementary, secondary, and teacher education textbooks for biased wording and attitudes and provides guidelines for forming a curricular response to sex-biased materials. The second session covers the topic of forms of sex bias in instructional procedures and in teacher education classrooms. Affirmative teaching strategies to eliminate bias are presented. Ways of alleviating sexism through institution building and scholarship are discussed. Sample worksheets and activity forms are included in the workbook. (JD)
