Rop, Charles
Educational Leadership, v55 n4 p58-60 Dec-Jan 1997-1998
Profiles Anna Kasov, veteran high school chemistry teacher disturbed by society's messages that chemistry is not women's work. Kasov tries to create an emotionally safe classroom atmosphere for both sexes. She suggests that teachers model intellectual risk-taking, encourage students to play with ideas, require students to treat classmates' contributions respectfully, note male and female participation patterns, consider single-gender laboratory groups, and stress philosophy and applications.
