Alaska's sex equity law, which prohibits sex discrimination in public school education, was passed by the Alaska legislature in 1981. Regulations require school districts to establish the training of personnel in the recognition of sex bias, and in the use of techniques and materials that may be used to overcome the effects of sex bias. This module was developed as a tool for aiding district personnel to conduct equity inservice workshops. The manual provides a chart indicating workshop learning objectives, methods, techniques, time, activity, rationale, and resources needed. Handouts and Trainer's Instruction Sheets provided include: "Overall Purpose and Design for Equity in Fine Arts Inservices"; "Caveman Exercise"; "Genderization of the Art Elements"; "Line Examples"; "Shape Examples"; "Texture Examples"; "System Examples"; "Sex Bias Teaching Situations"; and "Developing Equity in Fine Arts Lesson Plans." Topics for the Sex Equity Lesson Plans are: (1) "Exploration of Three Gendered Music Elements: Dynamics, Register, Tempo"; (2) "Exploration of Music-Related Careers"; (3) "Personality Quilt Design"; (4) "I'm Marilyn, I'm a Doctor"; (5) "Drama"; (6) "Twentieth Century Painting: One Woman's Contribution: Georgia O'Keefe"; and (7) "Dance: The Art of Expression Through Movement." Additional materials include an annotated list of "Music Careers" and a chart of "Some Visual Art Related Occupations." The document concludes with "Workshop Evaluation" and "Trainer's Module Evaluation" sheets. (MM)
