In an Age of Change, Where Are the Classroom? Book I: For Building Staff.
Atkinson, Karla
Focusing on the changing roles of women and men in the home and in the work place and the need to prepare students for these changing roles, this booklet presents facts and information that challenge stereotypical views about sex roles and provides activities for teachers to test their own views. The information and activities encourage teachers to evaluate their expectations of all students. Teachers also evaluate how those expectations are carried out in their classrooms. Some of the activities challenge teachers to become sensitive to the demands of single parenting, recognize the changing family environment, become aware of the expectations of male and female students, and inform students about career opportunities. Expectations for students need not be based on whether they are male or female. One way to minimize this distinction is to recognize the individual talents and needs that each student brings to the classroom, and to establish expectations for students based on these individual variations, rather than on gender.
