Gender Equity for Educators, Parents, and Community. Equity in Education Series.
Boland, Pat, Ed.
This booklet on gender equity challenges the old ways of thinking that limited expectations for girls and boys. Breaking the trap where gender determines what is possible means recognizing the limits of mindsets, opening eyes to new options, and encouraging young people to be all they can be. This booklet clarifies for educators and parents specific elements of federal legislation, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and helps teachers integrate gender equity activities into the daily classroom. The activities at the end of the booklet can be used by teachers, small groups, and individuals to increase gender equity awareness. Goals for teachers, parents, and administrators to attain are to encourage all young people to develop, achieve, and learn equally; place no limits on expectations due to gender; to provide an equal chance at learning for females and males; to open student options to learn subjects and prepare for future education, jobs, and careers; and to treat male and female students equitably. A 14-item bibliography concludes the booklet along with a 28-item supplement of additional readings and listings of related organizations. (JAG)
