Examining Sex Bias. Module 1. Choosing Occupations and Life Roles.
Pfiffner, Karen J.
This module on examining sex bias, the first in a series of three volumes of sex-fair career guidance activities, deals with choosing occupations and life roles. Included in the module are 20 individual and group activities designed to introduce students to the concept of sex-biased role perceptions and to make students aware of the potentially limiting effects of allowing sex role bias to interfere with occupational choices. Each activity contains a concept, a description of the activity, an overall goal, a list of needed materials, instructions for conducting the activity, discussion topics, outcome objectives, and suggestions for follow-up and alternative activities.
