Gender, science, and mathematics : shortening the shadow by Lesley H Parker( Book )

"The theme of Gender, Science and Mathematics is that change agents, such as teachers and curriculum writers, have a key role in the translation of gender equity policy into gender equitable practices in science and mathematics education" -- from back cover

University credit for school students by Jane Figgis( Book )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was undertaken to accurately map the opportunities secondary school students have to study university units for credit and to document the policies and conditions which facilitate (or impede) student access to such programs. Anecdotal evidence had suggested - rightly, as it turns out - that universities and schools are increasingly interested in developing arrangements which enable school students to access university units. In part, their interest reflects a world-wide trend towards framing all of education in terms of lifelong learning with a concomitant blurring of boundaries between educational sectors. In part, too, their interest is a recognition that able Australian school students need, and deserve, the stimulation of challenging advanced study. The landscape of access to university study by Australian school students is extremely uneven. The first systematic programs were devised in 1993 by three universities. Two of those, provided by Monash University and the University of Melbourne, remain the most comprehensive. They cater for the largest numbers of students and have the greatest (State-wide) reach. Indeed, with their combined total of more than 1000 student enrolments annually they account for nearly half the current Australian total of 2050 enrolments. The growth in accredited university study for school students has been gradual but steady. Twenty-three of the 37 universities which took part in this study have put in place at least one such program1. Many of the others are seriously investigating the possibility of developing a program in the future. Outside the two largest programs, the arrangements range in size from 142 students to six or seven

The effect of inservice training on teacher attitudes and primary school science classroom climates by Léonie J Rennie( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report documents the development, implementation and evaluation of an inservice program designed to facilitate a nonsexist approach to the teaching of science in primary schools. Ten matched pairs of teachers were selected on the basis of a survey questionnaire to participate in the study. Teachers were given help in the teaching of electricity and subsequently taught this topic to their Year 5 classes. A randomly selected half of the teachers (the experimental group) were also inserviced to assist them to acquire skills in creating and maintaining a nonsexist environment in their science classrooms. The project was evaluated by pre and post questionnaires to teachers and students, and classroom observation during the teaching of the electricity topic. As well as describing survey data about teachers attitudes, preferences, teaching methods and reasons for teaching science, and childrens interests and attitudes about science, the project found that teachers reported increased confidence, knowledge and skills in teaching electricity and changes in their awareness of the problems of girls in science. In those classes taught by the experimental group of teachers, childrens attitudes become less sex stereotyped, and interactions in mixed sex groupings enabled girls to participate more equitably in science activities

Facilitators and Barriers to Achieving Equity and Reform in Middle-School Mathematics by Joanne E Goodell( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the study described in this paper was to determine the facilitators and barriers teachers in middle-school mathematics classrooms faced when trying to implement equity and reform objectives. The study is set in the context of the Statewide Systemic Initiative (ssi) in Ohio known as Project Discovery. In 1995, a major evaluation of the ssi, known as The Landscape Study, was begun. Both quantitative and qualitative data were collected from a wide range of sources across the state. This study focuses on the qualitative data collected at seven middle-school sites visited over a twelve-month period. Data were analyzed using a framework which outlined four dimensions of reform developed by Rossman. These dimensions were Technical, Cultural, Political and Moral. A fifth dimension designated Caring was also identified. The paper concludes with a series of challenges for reformers and equity advocates. (Contains 35 references.) (Author/ASK)

Operationalizing Equity Through School Reform in Mathematics by Joanne E. Tims Goodell( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to explore the links between equity and reform in mathematics education. An overview of the research into problems associated with equity and mathematics education is presented, followed by an overview of the types of initiatives that have been employed to overcome the problems. A framework for viewing the problems and solutions is discussed followed by an operational definition of equity in the mathematics classroom. A review of two large-scale reform efforts in mathematics is presented and the data derived from monitoring these reform efforts forms the basis for this paper. A wide range of quantitative and qualitative data from the reform monitoring efforts is employed to examine the technical, cultural, political, and moral dimensions of enacting equity in reform. Contains 65 references. (Author/DDR)

A Comparison of Mixed-Sex and Single-Sex Grouping in Year 5 Science Lessons by Léonie J Rennie( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The observational data from a project which was designed to implement and monitor the effects of an inservice program in facilitating a non-sexist approach to the teaching of science in Australian primary schools are reported in this paper. Descriptions and analyses are provided both of the children's participation in activity-centered lessons on electricity and the nature of the teachers' interactins with the children. All 20 participating teachers received instruction in the teaching of electricity but only ten were designated as the experimental group which was involved in an awareness program on the possibilities of sexism in the physical sciences. Results of this study showed that in the experimental classes, boys and girls in mixed-sex and single-sex groups exhibited the same pattern of activity, whereas the control classes showed behavior differences in the mixed-sex group. It was concluded that single-sex grouping may be beneficial to girls' science education in cases where teachers have a low level of awareness and skills in relation to creating and maintaining a non-sexist learning environment.
