Biklen and Diane Pollard); (2) "Historical and Contemporary Views of Gender and Education" (Elizabeth Hansot); (3) "Beyond Rolling Models: Gender and Multicultural Education" (Deborah P. Britzman); (4) "Constructions of Curriculum and Gender" (Janet L. Miller); (5) "Equity Issues in Educational Research Methods" (Patricia B.
