The Fair Play program is a series of student and teacher materials the purpose of which is to help students expand their female or male self-concepts, increase their decision-making skills, and improve their academic achievement by changing their stereotypic attitudes toward particular content areas. This student guide contains 12 lessons organized into four parts: (1) understanding that many decisions are made every day and identifying the decision maker; (2) developing five skills used in personal decision making; (3) making group decisions; and (4) applying new skills to situations in which decisions are made related to male and female self-concepts. The lessons include learning activities for individuals and groups, discussion items, and evaluation exercises. (DC)
