I just finished taking the course. I found the information to be great and
very practical to use. Unfortunately we didn't have a very talkative on-line
group. I am sure that you can imagine how hard that was for me! I feel I
have some really great strategies to use in my classroom.  I would also
recommend it.

Hi all -
For any of you interested in gender issues in Math and Science for middle
school, I highly recommend taking this on-line course sponsored by WEEA.  I
observed / participated in this course last spring and found it
comprehensive, thought-provoking, and well-designed and implemented.  While
it focuses on girls' participation in SMT, I believe you will find the
principles and research applicable to both girls and boys, with special
applicability to students who are not readily engaged in the topic.

If there is enough interest in Vermont, I or another VISMT equity resource
person will arrange for one or more facilitated opportunities for
participants to dialogue (face to face!) about the course and course
content.  Just let me know!

Good luck - I hope some of you choose to explore this great opportunity!
Kathy

The WEEA Equity Resource Center and New England Comprehensive Assistance
Center's inspiring on-line course, ENGAGING MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRLS IN MATH AND
SCIENCE is being offered again beginning February 14.  Register by January
24th at <www.edc.org/WomensEquity>.

This on-line course will explore ways of creating classroom environments
that are supportive of girls' successes in math and science. Building on
what teachers already know about good instructional practice, this course
will attend to the unique social and academic needs of girls at this point
in their development. The long term goal of this course is to understand
ways to increase the interest of middle school girls in math and science,
affect their achievement levels so that they continue to pursue math and
science courses in high school, and provide them with the foundation to
pursue a variety of options at the college level. The math and science
focus of this on-line course builds on the premise that these disciplines
represent useful skills and approaches to addressing life experiences
regardless of whether they lead to careers in these fields.

Specifically, participants in the course will:

         Explore the out-of-awareness biases into which we are socialized
               and that permeate instructional practice
         Examine hidden gender-based assumptions in the MST curriculum
         Examine good instructional practice that attends to the unique
               needs of students who are girls of color, English Language
               Learners (ELL) and/or have disabilities
         Explore resources such as tools, materials, and role models, that
               will allow teachers to be more inclusive in their
               representation of good math, science, and technology
               practices
         Learn how to build family and community support that values
               girls' successes in math, science, and technology

Explore the subject with colleagues. Share research information, reflective
exercises, and lots of good discussions. The course will be offered over a
nine week period, with each of eight class sessions posted for two weeks at
a time. The eight sessions are as follows:

Gender in math and science classrooms (February 14 - February 27)

Equitable expectations and interactions (February 21 - March 5)

Equitable teaching strategies (February 28 - March 12)

Counteracting bias in math and science curricula (March 6 - March 19)

Equity in assessment (March 13 - 26)

Power, empowerment and competence (March 20 - April 2)

Family and community support (March 27 - April 9)

Final student presentations (April 3 - April 14)

All you need to participate is access to the Internet, an e-mail address,
and your commitment to girls' success in math and science. We encourage 2
or more teachers from the same school to participate as a team.

Start date:   The week of February 14, 2000
Course length: Nine weeks (from February 14 through April 14, 2000);
comparable to a 16 hour course
Course commitments:
1) a minimum of 2 hours on-line per session; 2) prepare and present a final
project on-line; and 3) participate in an on-going evaluation of the
course. To obtain PDP credits, participants are required to post at least
one message per session, present the final project, and complete an
evaluation of the course. PDPs are available for Massachusetts and other
New England States. If you are interested in obtaining them please be sure
to indicate that on the registration form.

Fee:       $80 for individual registrations
          $60 per individual for team registrations
            Fee includes course material.
Enrollment: Limited to 20
Registration deadline: January 24, 2000
