First published in 1985, the Handbook for Achieving Gender Equity Through Education quickly established itself as the essential reference work concerning gender equity in education. This new, expanded edition provides a 20-year retrospective of the field, one that has the great advantage of documenting U.S. national data on the gains and losses in the efforts to advance gender equality through policies such as Title IX, the landmark federal law prohibiting sex discrimination in education, equity programs and research. Key features include: Expertise – Like its predecessor, over 200 expert authors and reviewers provide accurate, consensus, research-based information on the nature of gender equity challenges and what is needed to meet them at all levels of education. Content Area Focus – The analysis of gender equity within specific curriculum areas has been expanded from 6 to 10 chapters including mathematics, science, and engineering. Global/Diversity Focus – Global gender equity is addressed in a separate chapter as well as in numerous other chapters. The expanded section on gender equity strategies for diverse populations contains seven chapters on African Americans, Latina/os, Asian and Pacific Island Americans, American Indians, gifted students, students with disabilities, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students. Action Oriented – All chapters contain practical recommendations for making education activities and outcomes more gender equitable. A final chapter consolidates individual chapter recommendations for educators, policymakers, and researchers to achieve gender equity in and through education. New Material – Expanded from 25 to 31 chapters, this new edition includes: *more emphasis on male gender equity and on sexuality issues; *special within population gender equity challenges (race, ability and disability, etc); *coeducation and single sex education; *increased use of rigorous research strategies such as meta-analysis showing more sex similarities and fewer sex differences and of evaluations of implementation programs; *technology and gender equity is now treated in three chapters; *women’s and gender studies; *communication skills relating to English, bilingual, and foreign language learning; and *history and implementation of Title IX and other federal and state policies. Since there is so much misleading information about gender equity and education, this Handbook will be essential for anyone who wants accurate, research-based information on controversial gender equity issues—journalists, policy makers, teachers, Title IX coordinators, equity trainers, women’s and gender study faculty, students, and parents.

Design and Technology has long held a controversial place on the school curriculum, with some arguing that it shouldn’t be there at all. This book presents and questions considered arguments and judgements, and explores the major issues that all D&T teachers encounter in their daily professional lives. In exploring some of the key debates, it encourages critical reflection and aims to stimulate both novice and experienced teachers to think more deeply about their practice, and link research and evidence to what they have observed in schools. Written by expert design and technology education professionals, chapters tackle established and contemporary issues, enabling you to reach informed judgements and argue your point of view with deeper theoretical knowledge and understanding. Debates covered include: What is the purpose of design and technology? Is it a vocational or academic subject? What is the place of design and technology within the STEM agenda? What knowledge and skills do teachers really need? What does the design and technology gender divide mean for schools and pupils? Is it a ‘creative’ subject? What is the future for design and technology? With its combination of expert opinion and fresh insight, Debates in Design and Technology Education is the ideal companion for any student or practising teacher engaged in initial training, continuing professional development or Masters level study.

For the first time, "Gifted Child Today Reader" series brings together the best articles published in "Gifted Child Today," the nation's most popular gifted education journal. Each book in this series is filled with exciting and practical classroom ideas, useful summaries of research findings, discussions of identification and classroom management, and informed opinions about educating gifted kids. Anyone involved in education will benefit from the practical, research-based ideas this unique series has to offer. It has been argued that American schools are not giving the same quality of attention to the education of girls that they do to boys, thus perpetuating professional gender inequalities by turning out better-prepared young men than women. While this is a controversial subject, it is a fact that women continue to be underrepresented in many of society's most respected professions, particularly in the areas of science and technology. "Teaching and Counseling Gifted Girls" covers some of the most important issues facing gifted and talented girls during their school years, from elementary school through college. General overviews of the internal and external barriers faced by gifted girls provide the context for more specific chapters on counseling and classroom strategies to help ensure these students' future success.

This supplemental text provides a collection of three dozen real-world case studies in diversity that foster discussion-based, active learning pedagogy designed to guide students in problem analysis and problem solving. The cases explore a wide-range of diversity issues at the elementary (Pre-K-5) level, including culture, academic performance and expectations, safety and prosocial behaviors, social issues, special needs, and issues surrounding the family. The approach organizes discussion around defining problems, identifying alternatives, and proposing solutions to the issues presented in the case. The goal of the text is not to pose a single solution, but rather to learn how to analyze situations involving diverse individuals, evaluate a variety of solutions, and evaluate the consequences of those solutions. Features The diverse authors consist of academics, practicing classroom teachers, student teachers, pre-service teachers, and students. Vignettes in each chapter present real-world situations by which teachers can make decisions. Provides guidelines for the use of cases to ensure effective use of the case-study approach. Cases vary in length, perspective, and subject area, providing maximum flexibility of use. "I am impressed by the writing ability of the case writers and the higher level thinking questions that accompany each case...there is terrific variety in the topics presented..." Professor Sandra J. McKee, "Clarion University of Pennsylvania" Author bio: Dr. Stacey Neuharth-Pritchett received her Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from Purdue University. She teaches courses in early childhood education. Her research centers on the contexts of early educational intervention, kindergarten retention, economically disadvantaged children's transition to school (particularly the Head Start population), and intervention for children with chronic health problems.
