"La Igualdad de Genero para Educadores, Padres, y la Comunidad"

This 32-page booklet addition to the Equity in Education Series challenges
thinking that limits expectations for girls and boys. Translated by the Western
Area Vocational Gender Equity Center, this Spanish-language version of the best-
selling "Gender Equity for Educators, Parents, and Community" (developed by the
WEEA Equity Resource Center) helps readers recognize the limits of assumptions
about gender and opens up new options. The booklet explains what Title IX is
and how it supports equitable education; teaches how to recognize and respond to
gender bias; provides gender equity awareness exercises for teachers to use in
K-12 classrooms; and illustraates gender stereotyping and its relationship to
students' success. And coming soon--a Vietnamese translation.
