Failing at fairness : how America's schools cheat girls by Myra Sadker( Book )

20 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 2,363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Failing at Fairness is a powerful indictment of sexism in America's classrooms. The findings from twenty years of research by two of America's most distinguished social scientists show that gender bias in our schools makes it impossible for girls to receive an education equal to boys'. Girls are systematically denied opportunities in areas where boys are encouraged to excel, often by well-meaning teachers who are unaware that they are transmitting sexist values. Girls are taught to speak quietly, to defer to boys, to avoid math and science, and to value neatness over innovation, appearance over intelligence. In the early grades girls, brimming with intelligence and potential, routinely outperform boys on achievement tests, but by the time they graduate from high school they lag far behind boys - a process of degeneration that continues into adulthood. By the time girls enter the working world, the damage has been done. Our daughters, tomorrow's women, learn that to be female is to be passive and deferential: We have, effectively, made girls second-class citizens in a world whose survival will depend on their contributions. The implications are devastating: If the cure for cancer is incubating in the mind of one of our daughters, we may never find it. Professors Myra and David Sadker have produced a comprehensive, compelling, and essential resource
Teachers, schools, and society by Myra Sadker( Book )

61 editions published between 1988 and 2018 in English and held by 1,602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Combining the brevity of a streamlined Introduction to Education text with the support package of a much more expensive book, the brief edition of Teachers, Schools, and Society encourages experienced instructors to explore their own creativity while ensuring that newer faculty can teach the course with confidence. David Sadker's and Karen Zittleman's lively writing style captures the joys and challenges of teaching. The text stresses the importance of fairness and justice in school and society, focuses on the most crucial topic areas, and integrates the most current issues in education. In addition, the wealth of activities included--from online video observations to portfolio-building exercises--offers a broad range of ways to introduce students to the teaching profession"--

Being a man : a unit of instructional activities on male role stereotyping by David Miller Sadker( Book )

6 editions published between 1977 and 1980 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These instructional activities are designed for teachers to use with junior high students. They serve as a brief yet practical introduction to the issue of sexism as it affects men. The first section provides background information about the issue of male sex role stereotyping. It is for the teacher's use only. It describes the techniques society employs to instill sex-typed behavior, the characteristics of the male stereotype, and the high cost of this masculine mystique. The second section contains classroom strategies and lesson plans intended to help students identify, analyze, and evaluate the male role stereotype and sex role stereotyping in general. When students become aware of how society channels them into sex role stereotypes, they will be better prepared to make independent decisions about the lifestyles and goals they wish to pursue based on their own values, interests, and abilities. It is important to note that the male stereotype discussed in these materials is characteristic of white, mainstream, United States culture. (Author)

The intellectual exchange : excellence and equity in college teaching by David Miller Sadker( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report focuses on pedgagogical technique within the context of the rapid expansion and demographic changes in college and university enrollments and how, coupled with budgetary entrenchment, these forces have left institutions of higher education dedicated to providing quality education in a state of crisis. Teaching is seen to be the key factor responsible for student learning and satisfaction with college, and the use of a teaching method called the interactive classroom is suggested as an appropriate methodology for raising educational quality and satisfaction for both teachers and students. The pedagogical cycle of the interactive classroom, consisting of four stages, and the benefits derived from each are described and discussed. The first stage, the introduction, is outlined and includes an illustrative example of such a segment from a freshman history class. This is followed by a similar analysis of the second stage: the questioning process by the instructor to the students. Third, the student response stage of the interactive classroom is discussed. Finally, the instructor's response, or feedback, is examined. The paper concludes with recommendations for improving the quality and raising the importance of the teaching profession. (Glr)

Women in literature : reading through the lens of gender by Jerilyn Fisher( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: With the literary canon consisting mostly of works created by and about men, the central perspective is decidedly male. This unique reference offers alternate approaches to reading traditional literature, as well as suggestions for expanding the canon to include more gender sensitive works. Covering 96 of the most frequently taught works of fiction, essays offer teachers, librarians, and students fresh insights into the female perspective in literature. The list of titles, created in consultation with educators, includes classic works by male authors like Dickens, Faulkner, and Twain, balanced with works by female authors such as Kate Chopin's The Awakening and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Also included are contemporary works by writers such as Alice Walker and Margaret Atwood that are being incorporated into the curriculum, as well as those advancing a more global view, such as Sandra Cisneros' House on Mango Street and Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart. The essays are expertly written in an accessible language that will help students gain greater awareness of gender-related themes. Suggestions for classroom discussions--with selected works for further study--are incorporated into the entries. The volume is organized alphabetically by title and includes both author and subject indexes. An appendix of gender-related themes further enhances this volume's usefulness for curriculum applications and student research projects
