What’s missing from your teacher education program? According to research studies, one glaring omission is gender. Tomorrow’s teachers receive little instruction or training on the tremendous impact of gender in the classroom. Just how does gender influence teaching, the curriculum, and the lives of teachers and students in the classroom? This unique book has been designed to answer these questions. Gender in the Classroom is intended to be used across the teacher education curriculum--from subject-specific methods courses to foundations, from educational psychology to student teaching. It can be adopted for an entire program, or several instructors can adopt it jointly, or a single instructor can adopt it as one of several or a supplementary text for a course. A comprehensive Instructor’s Manual provides information and materials for teacher educators who adopt the text. Each chapter offers practical information and skills about gender and sex differences, curriculum, and specific teaching methods. Written in a lively style, the text features a number of interactive activities to engage and instruct the reader. The chapters follow a common format designed to invite student interest and action. Each is built around Essential Equity Questions that focus on pertinent gender-related questions and issues in a specific subject area: *the role of women in education--intersections of the teaching profession, feminism, and teachers as activists for social change; *gender differences in cognitive ability, attitudes, and behavior; *how to teach and implement Title IX; *how to observe classrooms to “see” gender bias; *social studies education; *English/language arts methods; *science education; and *mathematics and technology education. Interactions in each chapter engage students in activities to promote understanding. Each Interaction is linked to one or more specific INTASC standards. In the last chapter, the emphasis is on applying many of the skills learned previously--it gives student teachers and their supervisors several tools they can use for analyzing classroom teaching and detecting gender bias. This chapter also includes a culminating activity for identifying and correcting curricular bias. In fact, many of the techniques in this text can be applied to uncover and correct not only gender bias, but racial, ethnic, and cultural bias as well. The Instructor's Manual [978-0-8058-5475-6] is now available electronically (please contact our customer service department to request a copy).

The diversity education literature, both nationally and internationally, is broad and diffuse. Consequently, there needs to be a systematic and logical way to organize and present the state of research for students and professionals. American citizens need to understand the dynamics of their increasingly diverse communities and institutions and the global world in which we live, work, and lead. With continually evolving information on diversity policies, practices, and programs, it is important to have one place where students, scholars, teachers, and policymakers can examine and explore research, policy, and practice issues and find answers to important questions about how diversity in U.S. education—enriched with theories, research and practices in other nations—are explained and communicated, and how they affect institutional change at both the K-12 and postsecondary levels. With about 700 signed entries with cross-references and recommended readings, the Encyclopedia of Diversity in Education (4 volumes, in both print and electronic formats) will present research and statistics, case studies, and best practices, policies, and programs at pre- and postsecondary levels. Diversity is a worldwide phenomenon, and while most of the entries in the Encyclopedia will focus on the United States, diversity issues and developments in nations around the world, including the United States, are intricately connected. Consequently, to illuminate the many aspects of diversity, this volume will contain entries from different nations in the world in order to illuminate the myriad aspects of diversity. From A-to-Z, this Encyclopedia will cover the full spectrum of diversity issues, including race, class, gender, religion, language, exceptionality, and the global dimensions of diversity as they relate to education. This four-volume reference work will be the definitive reference for diversity issues in education in the United States and the world.

Teaching and Learning in the Elementary School is built on the most current research and "best" practice. It thoroughly examines all of the fundamental teaching skill categories - planning for instruction, assessing student learning, grouping for instruction, and creating a safe and effective learning environment - while constantly reinforcing the idea that effective elementary school teaching requires continual, thoughtful, and reflective decision-making. In this popular volume, three well-known authors paint a realistic portrait of elementary school teaching as a call to motivate, to encourage, to simulate, to build self-esteem, and to care for elementary school children. For General Elementary Methods courses.

The Intersection of Cultures: Multicultural Education in the United States and the Global Economy, Fourth Edition offers a unique, problem-solving approach to the complex issues involved in educating culturally and linguistically diverse students. Perfect for any course devoted wholly or in part to the study of multicultural education, this text addresses a wealth of topics. A particular focus in this edition is the current global migration of peoples, and the tension between local and global cultures. Part One, Multiculturalism, includes chapters on cultural differences and schooling, dominated cultures, and immigrant cultures. Chapters in Part Two, Cultural Frames of Reference, address monoculturalism, biculturalism, and ethnic identity; multicultural minds; history, gender, and social class; and the intersection of school culture with dominated and immigrant cultures. Part Three, Perspectives on Teaching Multicultural Education, includes chapters on teaching about racism; teaching about sexism; and teaching to protect and preserve cultures. All chapters include model multicultural lessons for elementary through college classes. These lessons serve a dual function—first, they can be used to help teach the content of the chapter, and second, elementary, middle school, and high school teachers can use these lessons in their own classes. Each chapter concludes with a “Personal Frames of References” section designed to engage students in relating multiculturalism to their own lives. New in the Fourth Edition: *cultural differences in ways of seeing, knowing, and interrelating with the world; *recent research findings from cross cultural psychology and the psychology of immigration; and *methods for educating “multicultural minds”.

Valerie Pang's DIVERSITY AND EQUITY IN THE CLASSROOM bridges theory and practice using a student-centered and culture-centered approach based on a philosophy of social justice and equal outcomes for all.

Organized around social characteristics in response to the reality of people's multiple identities, the text emphasizes the intersectionality of diverse identities and promotes teachers' self-reflection of their own biases. Guided by social constructivism as the cognitive foundation for learning, the text's extensive strategies and methods ensure that teachers learn how to address prejudice and integrate culturally relevant teaching in their curriculum and classroom instruction. Checklists, teaching tips, and tools for classroom use are highlighted throughout.
