Non-Sexist Learning and Teaching with Young Children.
Morfield, Sheila
This brief teaching guide provides sex-fair activities for use in grades PS-3. Activities suggested cover five areas: (1) feelings (the need to be able to express feelings regardless of sex), (2) non-sexist behavior (encouraging children to behave according to their needs and desires rather than according to sex role expectations), (3) body movement (helping both boys and girls develop their physical capabilities and enjoy physical activities), (4) working (making children aware that work should not be related to sex), and (5) women in history (making children aware of the contributions of women). The kinds of activities suggested include group discussion, field study, puppetry, role playing, singing and reading books and magazines. The guide includes a 13-page annotated bibliography of non-sexist books, records and films for children, and a shorter annotated bibliography of non-sexist resources for teachers. (CM)
