Evaluating Courses for Inclusion of New Scholarship on Women.
Association of American Colleges, Washington, DC. Project on the Status and Education of Women.
Selected questions from a questionnaire that helps students evaluate how their course deals with women are presented. Some changes were made to this questionnaire, which was initially developed and used at Duke University (North Carolina). The survey also includes selected questions about classroom interaction. It can be used as is by individual students or faculty members to heighten awareness of women in the curriculum and/or to evaluate courses. It can be used in part; or it can be adapted for use by faculty, departments, or institutions with the results tallied for further evaluation. Selected survey multiple-choice questions cover: evaluation of course readings, evaluation of the syllabus, evaluation of the class, and overall course evaluation. Five essay questions are also included. Questions that can provide a frame of reference for further thinking are offered, since assumptions about gender may be explicit or implicit in many texts and topics assigned in the classroom. Five resources that provide historical accounts of new scholarship on women are identified, along with three basic bibliographic sources, and 12 selected overviews. (SW)
