Achieving Equity in the Secondary Schools of Texas...A Closer Look. Instructor's Supplement.
Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock.
A study was conducted to identify those behaviors and practices of Texas secondary school teachers that perpetuate gender bias and stereotyping. A panel of 26 experts identified, selected, and prioritized sex bias and stereotyping issues prevalent in Texas through a two-round Delphi procedure. Together with information gathered from historical research on teacher attitudes and behaviors, the Delphi study results were used to develop a videotape and study guide to increase teachers' awareness of sex bias and stereotyping in their speech/actions. The video featured three segments (titled "Gender Stereotyping,""What Teachers Say," and "What Teachers Do and Allow Students to Do") portraying students and teachers in three common teacher-student encounters: a teacher advising a student for upcoming registration, a rehearsal for a one-act play, and a typical day in an agriscience classroom and shop. Recommendations for gender-fair teaching practices were also incorporated into each video. (This document includes 41 references, excerpts from one of the scripts, and a guidesheet for using the project-developed study guide and video to conduct a sex equity training session for teachers. Appended are the advisory committee workshop agenda, survey instruments, and issues related to each of the three video segments.) (MN)
