This volume summarizes projects funded by the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education, examining the various lessons learned.

The Classroom climate : a chilly one for women? by Roberta M Hall( Book )

4 editions published between 1982 and 1991 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subtle or overt ways in which women and men students are often treated differently are discussed, and actions that can be taken to create a learning climate that fosters the intellectual growth of all students are identified. Information was obtained from several kinds of sources, including empirical studies of postsecondary and other classrooms, reports and surveys, and responses to requests for information. Topics include the following: how a "chilly" climate for women affects all students and can interfere with the educational process; devaluation and the postsecondary learning climate; experiences in early schooling; experiences in society and everyday inequities; everyday inequities in the postsecondary setting and in individual student-teacher interchange; the power of words and the classroom's silent language; everyday inequities in talk that may be carried into the classroom; ways of conducting discussion that can discourage women students; groups of women who may be especially affected, including women graduate students, women in traditionally "masculine" fields, women minority students, and older women students. Policy and general recommendations are offered along with recommendations for the following parties: presidents, deans, department chairs, student affairs personnel, faculty, women students and special groups of women students, and professional associations and organizations. Recommendations regarding curriculum, promotion of institutional research, faculty development programs, and classroom climate issues are also presented. A selected list of areas for further research, a student-faculty communication checklist, and a student perception questionnaire are appended. (Sw)

Highlighted in the handbook are 20 resource lists of people, institutions, publications, and ideas that present, among other information, names of consultants, funding ideas, where to get technical assistance, useful newsletters, and a directory of state planning designers for education information centers.
