Florida State Univ., Tallahassee.
This unit, one of six which comprise the Fair Play program, examines male and female characteristics and behaviors in relation to genetics and environment. 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 17 lessons organized into four parts: (1) female and male attitudes toward science; (2) role of chromosomes and genes in human development; (3) relationship between humans and their environment; and (4) environmental decisions related to technology, lifestyle, and society. 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)
