Hands-On Tutorial Begins June 19th, 2000

- Are some girls in your classes tuning out of math or science?
- Wondering why there are still so few women in math, science or technology
careers--and how you can help your students move into these careers?
- Want to learn how to effectively reach girls of color, girls who are
learning English, or girls with disabilities?
- Have you wondered about how to increase interest and achievement for all
- Looking for ways to exchange ideas with other math or science educators?
Here's an exciting opportunity to explore ways to increase girls' interest
and participaton in math and science at a time when you can have
significant impact--middle school. Join with formal and informal educators
for a summer online course designed to help strengthen equitable classrooms
and support learning for girls and boys. A nine-week course that fits into
your summer schedule! Log on at a time that meets your needs.
Engaging Middle School Girls builds on what teachers already know about
good instructional practice, addresses the unique social and academic needs
of middle school girls, explores the "lens" and "hidden curriculum" that
unintentionally may limit girls' engagement with math or science.
Sessions include: Gender in math and science classrooms; Equitable
expectations and interactions; Equitable teaching strategies; Counteracting
bias in math and science curricula; Equity in assessment; Power,
empowerment, and competence; Family and community support; and Final
