Raising the Grade: A Title IX Curriculum.
Jan 14th, 2014 by

I have been asked a few times now for recommendations of an “educational or restorative nature” to help recalcitrant

violators of Title IX. This is a good resource.

 Raising the Grade: A Title IX Curriculum.

Building an effective classroom for all boys and girls is the first step in increasing student achievement. This curriculum guide is a collection of practical tools for teachers and fun activities for kindergarten through twelfth-grade students, developed to help all students to succeed in the classroom. The curriculum is designed to be used throughout the school year, as part of a thematic unit, across the curriculum, or on its own. It helps teachers and students to assess their awareness of gender equity issues and learn to work together across the diversity of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, and disability. Following an introduction, the guide is divided into the following parts: (1) “Awareness of Gender Equity”; (2) “Introduction to Title IX”; (3) “Components of Title IX”; and (4) “Action for Change.” An appendix contains lists of handouts and worksheets, student readings, and transparencies, as well as a sample letter for promoting equity awareness. Also contains an extensive list of resources. (BT)

Posted by Rohmteen Mokhtari, June 26, 2013

With all the media attention on the Supreme Court’s historic marriage equality rulings, some parents and teachers may initially feel a little anxious about discussing the topic with their children or students.

Sometimes talking to children about LGBT issues seem difficult, in part, because as adults we haven’t had a chance to consider what we want to say and how we would respond to questions. Often when discussing a new topic, we rely on past experiences to help us out. However, many of us don’t have much experience talking about LGBT topics. Therefore, our past experience doesn’t help us out.

Fortunately, with just a little forethought and preparation this can be a great teachable moment.

Stop Penalizing Boys for Not Being Able to Sit Still at School

Why teachers should embrace learning differences in boys
Upon reviewing some paperwork from the previous school year, New Hampshire middle-school teacher Jessica Lahey said she noticed she disciplined male students much more often than female students. She writes in this commentary that the traditional classroom model may not work for boys, who are statistically more likely than girls to be suspended, disciplined and diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. She writes that researchers have found boys tend to thrive in a classroom environment where they can develop an end-product and participate in structured, competitive games.
