    The 2000 Catalog from the WEEA Equity Resource Center at EDC is now

    Products in the catalog have been developed throughout the country by
    teachers, researchers, state education officials, community organizations,
    and individuals. They offer concrete ways to implement gender equitable
    education in all settings--education that supports the education of all
    students. Whether you are beginning the process or are an experienced
    gender equity specialist, our resources will help you make sense of
    emerging issues in equity and how they relate to your teaching or work.
    One important product is Raising the Grade: A Title IX Curriculum,
    designed to help girls and boys recognize how to make gender equity a
    positive reality in all areas of their lives.

    In addition to materials for the classroom, the catalog has the latest
    research and discussion on key education issues, highlighted in our digests
    and working papers. Digests, written by education researchers and experts
    in the field, help practitioners, administrators, and policymakers look
    specifically at the gender issues within key reform efforts. Our most
    recent digest, Honoring Ways of Knowing: Education Assessment, is authored
    by A. Lin Goodwin of Teachers College. Her research article is supported
    by articles from state and local practitioners who give a snapshot of ways
    to implement equitable assessment.

    In addition to the catalog, we have a variety of fliers on our materials
    and services, ranging from materials and programs for SMET to materials for
    educational leadership and disabilities.

    The catalog and other fliers are available individually or in bulk and are
    perfect for workshops, trainings, teacher preparation classes, and resource
    libraries. To request copies, contact the WEEA Center: 800-225-3088;
    800-354-6798 (TTY) or WEEActr@edc.org
