ANNOUNCING - The Myra Sadker Curriculum Award

Since gender bias can emerge in any subject area, shouldn't every
confront this bias?
Should teacher education programs promote curriculum development that
counters society's biases?
Can an interdisciplinary approach strengthen our efforts to eliminate
racism, classism and other forms of bias in schools?

The Myra Sadker Curriculum Award program. This award will honor an
creative lesson plan that integrates an aspect of gender equity into the
classroom curriculum. The possibilities are really limitless! Though gender

orientation, religion, ability and language are all important and

As you explore new and effective methodologies this semester, consider how
gender is depicted in curricula and how these lessons affect both males and

females. And as you develop your language arts, social studies, science,
math, and technology lesson plans, why not integrate gender equity?
