Science and Mathematics for All Students: It's Just Good Teaching.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
The persistent underrepresentation of women and people of color in science and mathematics education and careers remains a challenge to all who champion the commitment of equity and excellence in education. This is the first publication in a series produced by the Science and Mathematics Education unit at the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory (NREL) that is intended to furnish K-12 teachers with both research-based rationale and recommendations for effective techniques that can be applied in today's complex and changing classrooms. This publication focuses on equity in the classroom. Topics include good teaching, expectations, welcoming diversity, confronting stereotypes, mathematics and science for everyone, classroom interactions, learning styles, ability grouping/tracking, cooperative learning, hands-on activities, single-sex grouping, the importance of connection, writing, career awareness and role models, mentors, peer mentoring, assessment, family involvement, and professional development. Listed resources include publications, curricula, organizations, online resources, and bibliography. (JRH)
