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 to 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 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. The lessons include learning activities for individuals and groups, discussion items, and evaluation exercises. (DC)
