A Publication of the Province of British Columbia, "Equity in Apprenticeship
Resource Kit" has 7 page section of terrific resources (with contact
information) on "Creating an Equitable Classroom and Curriculum". this
looseleaf book is availabe through the Apprenticeship Branch,Greg Biggs,

There are many very fine resources annotated here.

and excellent resource that I have seen and used and is available from Jean
Campbell of BC Ministry of Education, Skills and Training fax:356-8131
