Achieving Sex Equity through Students. "Equity in Education."
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing. Office of Career and Technical Education.
ASETS (Achieving Sex Equity Through Students) is a peer leadership program designed to prepare Michigan high school students to develop and present sex-equitable career-related programs to middle school students. The emphasis is on career decision making based upon career interests rather than gender. This handbook is a guide for a 2-day workshop designed to help trainers train teams of advisors and students to present the career-related sex-equitable program to middle school students. It consists of presentation notes for trainers, learning activities, and a student handbook for the peer leaders to use in making their presentations to the younger students. Topics covered include the following: goals, planning the workshop, materials needed, agendas for the workshop days, sex-fairness awareness-building activities, student presentation techniques, student presentations, and an annotated list of 41 videotapes on gender bias, media stereotyping, nontraditional occupations, and sexual harassment that can be borrowed from the Michigan Center for Career and Technical Education.
