Equity Materials in Mathematics, Science, & Technology: A Resource Guide.
Hulme, Marylin A.
This annotated bibliography is a resource guide designed to assist schools in promoting the interest, engagement, and achievement of all students, especially those populations (poor, immigrant, female, and minority) that are underrepresented among students who elect advanced mathematics and science courses and pursue related careers. These materials have been carefully screened and selected for their usefulness in reviewing the curriculum, evaluating instructional materials, conducting professional development, and promoting parent/school partnerships. Many can be used directly with students in the classroom. There are three sections to this guide. Part 1, "Print Materials," provides information to assist educators in exploring the underlying causes and subtle barriers that discourage so many students from recognizing the relevance and usefulness of science and math to their lives and future careers. Part 2, "Resources for Career Information," lists information on careers in science and technology published in booklet or pamphlet form by associations, professional societies, nonprofit groups and corporations; the pamphlets are grouped together under the name of the publisher or the originator. Part 3, "Films, Videotapes, Slides and Audio Tapes," supports the work of integrating gender and cultural diversity into the classroom and of providing professional development for educators. Each entry provides a brief annotation regarding content, format and grade level (elementary, secondary, staff development and postsecondary; general, wide appeal, appropriate for use with parents, community members, youth groups and board members.) (An index for audiovisual materials contains items categorized by subject headings.) (MKR)
