Raising the Grade: A Title IX Curriculum.
Smith, Susan J.; Fleming, Paula
Building an effective classroom for all boys and girls is the first step in increasing student achievement. This curriculum guide is a collection of practical tools for teachers and fun activities for kindergarten through twelfth-grade students, developed to help all students to succeed in the classroom. The curriculum is designed to be used throughout the school year, as part of a thematic unit, across the curriculum, or on its own. It helps teachers and students to assess their awareness of gender equity issues and learn to work together across the diversity of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, and disability. Following an introduction, the guide is divided into the following parts: (1) "Awareness of Gender Equity"; (2) "Introduction to Title IX"; (3) "Components of Title IX"; and (4) "Action for Change." An appendix contains lists of handouts and worksheets, student readings, and transparencies, as well as a sample letter for promoting equity awareness. Also contains an extensive list of resources.
