Expanding Options. Facilitator's Guide--Secondary Teacher Workshop.
Center for Studies of the Person, San Diego, CA.
This guide provides procedures and supporting materials for a sex equity workshop targeted at secondary school teachers. The workshop is intended to expand awareness of sexism and to increase sex-affirmative behavior in the educational environment. The guide describes the content, process, and sequential learning experiences for six sessions, plus an optional seventh session. Sessions 1 and 2 are organized to increase awareness of sexism and sex-role stereotyping and to provide a common vocabulary. Sessions 3 and 4 focus on the results of sex discrimination and some remedies in education. Sessions 5 and 6 investigate the school environment (what is) and planning for change (what should be). The optional seventh session deals with assertiveness training, which is intended to lead to the development of effective change agents. In addition to session-by-session procedures and supporting materials, this guide includes mini-lectures, activity guides, handout materials for the participants (assessment instruments, activity cards, readings and worksheets), and transparency masters.
