A Supplement to a Packet of Elementary Classroom Activities To Teach Students about Sex Role Stereotyping, Preschool to Second Grade.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing. Office for Sex Equity.
Sex role identification and socialization occur during early childhood years. Toys, books, materials, and attitudes of child care givers and preschool teachers in organized educational and social activities, such as nursery schools, preschools, and group care, can be used to help combat or reduce sex stereotyping. The materials contained in this supplement to "A Packet of Elementary Classroom Activities to Teach Students about Sex Role Stereotyping," are divided into four categories: (1) materials for teachers to use to assess the status of sexism; (2) student stereotype awareness activities; (3) stories and poems to stimulate discussion of nontraditional and nonsexist attitudes and behavior; and (4) 115 print and non-print resources. Suggestions are presented for both group and individual activities and for selecting materials, toys, and books which focus on non-sexism at early childhood education levels. (JHP)
