Robinson Elementary School's curator insight, July 21, 2013 11:09 AM

I've had conversations with many staff about gender in the classroom. This article asks us to hold the mirror up to our own gender bias'. Interesting....

K. Paige Ashworth's curator insight, April 23, 2014 2:51 PM

This article shows the ways that any act of correcting a student can be seen as bias. Seeing as boys generally act differently than girls, if you correct the students the same way, one gender will get the downside of that, but if you consider them treating the two genders differently, someone will say that a specific gender is being favorited.

Interesting chart.

Vince Hill's curator insight, July 30, 2013 12:54 PM

Nicely laid out. I would suggest any teacher would print this out and pin it to the bulletin board behind them as a constaint reminder. You could be as creative as laminate it and move a sticker around for each day, so you are trying something new. For the ATTEND box, maybe it could be attend a webinar and not a conference.
