GESA Facility Workshop

From: Pam (
Date: Mon Jan 31 2000 - 12:43:55 EST

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.
