Throw Like a Girl: A Revolution in Women's Sports. Curriculum Guide.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Tucker Center for Research on Girls and Women in Sport.
This curriculum guide helps teachers explore themes presented in a companion videotape, "Throw Like a Girl." Curriculum objectives, instructional strategies, and assessments align with the video's four-part structure. The video presents the story of what it has been like for females to play sports as told through the eyes of different generations of Minnesota families. It discusses barriers that had to be overcome in order to reach a landmark movement in women's sports (the 1972 passage of Title IX) and all of the victories that have occurred in its wake. It is a story about females participating at all levels of sport and about the impact of sport on women and their families, communities, and countries. The four curriculum units are: the history of Title IX; the media's portrayal of women in sports; the psychological, sociological, and physiological implications of women's participation in sports; and important athletes and leaders in the history of women's sports. Each unit includes unit objectives, instructional strategies, student assignments, and assessments. Subject areas include physical education, health, social studies, history, and media studies. The assignments may be adapted to meet the developmentally appropriate needs of students in grades 7-12. (SM)
