Decisions about Roles. Teacher's Guide. Fair Play: Developing Self-Concept and Decision-Making Skills in the Middle School.
Florida State Univ., Tallahassee.
This unit, one of six which comprise the Fair Play program, is designed to broaden understanding of roles and improve students' abilities to make decisions about roles. 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 teaching guide includes a brief description of the total program, an overview of the content of this unit, recommendations for instructional approaches, descriptions of program materials, a bibliography of print and audiovisual resources, and tips for small-group management. The bulk of this guide consists of the student guide which contains 20 lessons organized into four parts: (1) introduction to the concept of role and the forces that influence role definition; (2) investigation of work, family, and citizenship roles in the early 1900's; (3) study of how roles have changed in the twentieth century; and (4) an opportunity to make personal and group role decisions. Detailed annotations are provided to aid the teacher in planning and presenting each lesson. The final section provides a unit performance test with answer key. (DC)
