This guide describes the development of a nonsexist early childhood curriculum designed to make teachers and parents more aware of the sexism existing in society and reflected in our schools. The guide is divided into six chapters: Chapter 1 presents a brief history of the Non-Sexist Child Development Project; Chapter 2 examines some of the basic premises in psychological theory and in teacher training courses concerning children and their development. Chapter 3 evaluates five learning environments in a preschool classroom (housekeeping area, cooking, blocks, outdoor play, and workbench/shop), and suggests guidelines for eliminating rigid sex-role stereotyping in these areas. Chapter 4 outlines four nonsexist curriculum units (Families, Jobs People Do, The Human Body, and Homemaking), and Chapter 5 lists nonsexist early childhood materials that are either commercially produced or hand-made. The last chapter reviews some of the efforts made by the Women's Alliance to engage parents in discussion of the effects of sexism on both boys and girls. An annotated bibliography of nonsexist picture books and a bibliography of nonsexist readings are included. (Cs)
