Gender and Teaching provides a vivid, focused, and interactive overview of important gender issues in education today. This is aocomphshed through conversations among experts, practitioners, and readers that are informed by representative case studies and by a range of theoretical approaches to the issues. Gender and Teaching is the third volume in Reflective Teaching and the Social Conditions of Schooling: A Series for Prospective and Practicing Teachers, edited by Daniel P. Liston and Kenneth M. Zeichner. It follows the same format as previous volumes in the senes. Part I 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 reactions from preservice and practicing teachers, administrators, and professors. Part II is an elaboration of four “public argurnents”—conservative, liberal, women-centered, and radical-multicultural-—pertaining to the issues raised in Part I. These arguments exemplify dusters of orientations, organized around general values rather than hard and fast principles. Part lii presents the authors’ own interpretations of the issues raised throughout the book, and provides activities and topics for reflection and an annotated bibliography of additional resources.
