GENDER EQUITY ACTIVITIES THAT ENLIST WIDE SUPPORT

Saturday, July 8, 2000
3:00-5:00 p.m. MDT
(originating from Denver, Colorado)

How can classroom teachers carry out gender equity activities that gain
the support of other teachers, administrators and staff, and girls and
boys themselves? In an effort not to "go it alone," a group of high
school computer science teachers who received a week of intensive gender
equity training and have been doing gender equity in their schools are
meeting again. You are invited to join us as we compare successes and
not-yet-successes. All of us will be available to answer on-line questions
from our live audience during the broadcast.

their schools

David Sadker, Professor of Education, American University and noted
