A Comparative View of the Roles of Women and Men: Grades 6-12. Comparative Studies Series.
Miller, Barbara; And Others
Designed to supplement intermediate or secondary level courses on sex roles or the family, the activities in this handbook enable students to examine changing sex roles and their effects on individuals and society. Materials are presented in three parts. Activities on perception and awareness (part 1) focus on identifying and reducing sex role stereotypes. In part 2, students examine the historical roles of both sexes as a means of understanding contemporary situations. The final section, sex roles around the world, emphasizes improving the status of women as a cornerstone to implementing human rights on a global scale. Special attention is given to third world women. Over 30 activities, many of which focus on a background reading, utilize a wide variety of teaching strategies. Examples of activities include performing two contrasting skits on Susan B. Anthony, writing family histories, analyzing changing material values between grandparents and selves, examining women's jobs in the 1930's, and analyzing changing sex roles in songs. Objectives, grade level, required class time, materials, procedure, and follow-up evaluation method are outlined for all activities. Reproducible handouts for each part are provided at the end of the book. (LP)
