The overall goal was to familiarize teachers with reform initiatives in science education and to chart their progress as change agents of gender equity in the classroom. This paper reports results of year one and two on teachers' reflections and dialogue concerning their conception changes of teaching science and mathematics as they confront the issue of equitable practice.
