Exemplary & Promising Gender Equity Programs, 2000.
Department of Education, Washington, DC.
This report identifies promising and exemplary programs that promote gender equity in and through education during the 1996-99 Gender Equity Expert Panel review cycle. These programs need to meet four criteria: evidence of success/effectiveness in promoting gender equity, quality of program, educational significance, and usefulness to others or replicability. Eleven such programs are recommended: Career Choices Curriculum, Alabama Supercomputing Program to Inspire Computational Research in Education (ASPIRE), EQUALS, Family Tools and Technology, National Science Partnership for Girl Scouts and Science Museums, Playtime Is Science, Campus Peer Training Project, The Program on Intergroup Relations, Conflict and Community (IGRCC), Succeeding at Fairness, and A Woman's Place. Each program is described by a short paragraph, followed by target population(s), cost, additional resources, review summary, and contact information. It is hoped that these program summaries will be useful to educators and other community leaders who want to use programs that have evidence of increasing gender equity. The expert panel system, program review process, description of the four judgment criteria, and a statement on how to use this report are given in the introduction. (RT)
