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).

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.
