Infusing Sex Equity into the Curriculum. Monograph. Volume 2, Number 2.
Slater, Shirley; Cibrowski, Lee
This monograph proposes that sex equity should be infused and integrated into all aspects of the vocational curriculum until equity is accepted as an integral component of the educational process. It suggests that the leadership will come from vocational supervisors, vocational teachers, the Board of Education, state department staff, and officers and members of professional organizations. These recommendations are made for encouraging infusion: leaders who serve as role models, educators who set an example, support and rewards, inservice education, and monitoring. A checklist is provided for evaluating sex equity curriculum infusion. A discussion of the importance of infusion is followed by a list of examples of teaching and learning strategies that can be used to introduce and integrate equity into the curriculum. Evaluation of the effectiveness of the sex equity infusion is suggested as the final step in the infusion process. A selected bibliography is provided. (YLB)
