Materials 1 copy of the Title IX Sports Graphs worksheet on page 189 for each student 1 ruler for each student 1 pencil for each student Background Information In this lesson students read double bar graphs comparing female to male participa- tion in sports. The nature of women’s participation in athletics changed in a major way in 1972 when Congress enacted Title IX. Title IX states, “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activ- ity receiving Federal financial assistance” (20 U.S.C. § 1681). Public and private institutions of learning that receive federal assistance must prac- tice Title IX. Title IX does not apply to private colleges and universities that do not receive any federal assistance. Since 1972, many new opportunities have become avail- able for female athletes to participate in sports. New teams were formed and new organizations established. By 1976, the number of females participating in high school athletics had risen to 1,645,039. In the 2000-01 school year, the number of females participating in high school athletics was 2,784,154. (These statistics are according to the National High School Federation [NFHS].) Title IX had far-reaching effects, produc- ing new opportunities for women in such areas as coaching, sports reporting, scholar- ships and equipment. L E S S O N 5

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
