Selected Project Materials, 1980-1983 of the Women in the Curriculum Program and the Leadership for Educational Equity Project.
Fritsche, JoAnn M., Comp.
Selected materials from two projects designed to engage college faculty and administrators in examining and addressing problems of gender bias in curricula and scholarship are presented. Following a description of the Women in the Curriculum Project (WIC) and the Leadership in Educational Equity Project (LEEP), this document presents a brief discussion of three stages of development involved in the organization of an equity leadership team. Details of a pilot project for WIC are outlined, with attention given to course evaluation/criteria development teams. Initial questions about the place of women in the curriculum and discussion questions for faculty development workshops are followed by suggested activities designed to foster institutional support and program development. Next, a working definition of a balanced course precedes a look at goals beyond the first stage of the project. The final section considers goals beyond the second stage of the project in a discussion of courses and the disciplines in terms of the scholarship, values, and perspectives of women. The document concludes with a bibliography of over 20 resources, produced between 1975 and 1982, related to the feminist transformation of the curriculum. (LH)
