Description of Workshop Series for Precollege Teachers on Women and Gender, Including Topics Covered, Readings Used, and Sample Handouts.
A 2-year curriculum transformation project for 12 humanities teachers from seven independent schools sought to help pre-college teachers integrate new information and insights based on women's studies and gender scholarship into their teaching. Topics covered during the workshops included the history of concern with women and gender; engenderment as a social process; tensions between gender shared and gender specific experience and behavior; the uniformities and diversities within and between women's and men's experience, with special attention to the effects of class, race and ethnic background; the differences and interactions between experience and ideology; theories of feminism; stages in curricular revision; and pedagogical implications of the ways society is gendered. This document is a description of the curriculum development project, and includes a syllabus and resource guide. (JD)
