Hi Bill:

Eddie Davis here. This is not a complete answer to your question, but it
might be a 'little' helpful. Deborah Tannen, in her book, "You Just Don't
Understand," described several techniques she used to collect data on male -
female communication. One of those methods was to used video cameras, and
another method was to have boys and girls interact in settings with one-way
Just a thought.

^*Hello, Folks,
^* As a student of education, I am trying to improve
^*teaching methods in the area of gender equity. Beyond
^*lists of suggestions and research materials documenting
^*the effects of educational sexism, there seems to be
^*little of practical use. Does anyone know of a systematic
^*observation program, for instance on video, that demonstrates
^*how to identify sexist practices? I've found such programs
^*to be helpful in other areas of method, so why not in
^*gender (or even race) equity?
^* Thanks for your time,
^* Bill O.
