Teaching Faculty Members To Be Better Teachers. A Guide to Equitable and Effective Classroom Techniques.
Sandler, Bernice Resnick; Hoffman, Ellen
This guide is intended to be used with a videotape in conducting a campus workshop for faculty on equitable and effective teaching techniques. Part 1 of the material covers the minutiae of conducting a campus workshop such as planning, location, schedule, handouts, facilitators, step-by-step instructions, and evaluation. Included are a sample invitation letter, checklists of the materials needed for the workshop, a list of agenda points, a gender communications quiz, suggestions for role playing, a list of strategy overview points, and evaluation tips. Also included are two optional exercises; one dealing with the "chilly classroom" and the other with gender issues. Part 2 discusses how to recognize and deal with inequitable and inadvertent behaviors, and the effect of differential treatment. It suggests ways to warm up a chilly climate and to help teachers become more effective. Also included are two checklists to assess faculty member behavior; a humorous one on how to discourage women from participating in class and the other listing ten ways to encourage women to talk in class. (Contains 31 reference notes and 14 suggested readings.) (CH)
