Developed as a supplement to existing materials on gender equity, this curriculum guide is designed to supply indepth information on sex bias and sex-role stereotyping in vocational education. It is intended for educators, students, and parents who can learn from its contents through workshops, seminars, organizational meetings, and classroom presentations. A gender equity glossary appears first. Each of the eight units contains some or all of these components: objective sheet with vocabulary list and quotations, teacher information sheets with objective and lecture notes, transparency masters, activity sheets, activity sheet answers, and action sheets. Unit I outlines what human rights are, how they are determined, and how they change. Unit II discusses traditional views of gender equity and the federal laws protecting individuals from bias. Unit III dispels myths often associated with each gender. Unit IV gives a futuristic view of where the jobs are and presents a challenge to meet the nation's needs by eliminating gender biases and racial prejudices. Unit V identifies the different types of harassment and appropriate actions to stop it. Activities in unit VI direct individuals in finding their own answers. Focus is on developing skills in decision making. Unit VII assists counselors in helping individuals explore nontraditional careers. Unit VIII evaluates home and work roles and provides insight on how to redistribute the responsibility fairly. (YLB)
