Achieving Equity in the Secondary Schools of Texas...A Closer Look.
Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock.
This booklet is designed to introduce secondary educators to a three-part training session that was developed to make Texas teachers more aware of the subtle gender-biased behaviors that can emerge during interactions between teachers and students in three typical settings: a teacher advising a student for upcoming registration, a rehearsal for a one-act play, and a typical day in an agriscience classroom and shop. The booklet begins with a brief introduction and a pretest for teachers to take before viewing the training session's three video segments, which deal respectively with various aspects of bias perpetuated by what teachers say, what teachers do, and what teachers allow others to do. The plots and main points raised during the three video segments are summarized. Presented next are sections on each of the three video segments. Each section contains the following: a list of gender equity statements demonstrated in that segment of the video, a brief discussion of the gender equity issues raised in the video segment, and a posttest devoted to the video segment. A glossary and brief reference list are included. Appended are the pretest and posttest answers. (MN)
