    Dee Grayson and I (Pam Miller) hope you will have or did have (depending
    on when you pick up this e-mail!) a great holiday. We have been very
    busy, like everyone else and have been slow getting this information
    out. We realize that this is short notice but we hope to put together
    two three day GESA Facilitator trainings in Feburary of 2000.

    For those of you who are not familiar with GESA, I will briefly explain
    the program. GESA examines the five areas of disparity in the classroom
    and then encourages teachers to utilize research based, proactive
    instructional strategies and resources to eliminate the disparities and
    support high expectations. The necessity of high expectations for all
    students has been identified repeatedly as an essential factor for
    educational success at all levels.

    These Areas of Disparity have proven to be generic and are applicable to
    concerns related to gender, race, national origin, developmental or
    physical disability socio-economic class, perceived ability, or any of
    the labels which tend to deal people out or permit them to deal
    themselves in or out of the educational system.

    This three day training will equip the participants to facilitate the
    GESA teacher workshops with classroom teachers back at their school
    sites. They will facilitate classroom teachers learning about the
    effects of gender, race ethnic and other differences in their perceived
    expectations of students. GESA emphasizes the research on teacher
    perceptions and expectations in the classroom, suggests alliterative
    behaviors and provides techniques for application and practice.
