Description - Gender and Teaching by Frances A. Maher

A focused and interactive overview of the important gender issues in education today. This is accomplished through conversations among experts, practitioners and readers, that are informed by representative case studies and by a range of theoretical approaches to the issues. Part one includes four cases dealing with related aspects of gendered experiences in schools (non-sexist elementary school curricula, gender and race implications of special education assignment practices, homophobia in high schools and classrooms, and teaching as a woman's profession), followed by a set of teachers', administrators' and professors' reactions to each case. Part two is an elaboration of four "public arguments" - conservative, liberal, women-centred, and radical multicultured - pertaining to the issues raised in the cases in Part one. These arguments exemplify clusters of orientations, organized around general values rather than hard and fast principles. Part three presents the authors' own interpretations of the issues raised throughout the work and provides activities and topics for reflection and an annotated bibliography of additional resources.
