PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Gender-based achievement gaps (especially in math and science) suggest the existence of gender bias in the classroom. Although most people would like to believe gender bias in the classroom is no longer a problem, evidence points to a persistent achievement gap between boys and girls. Students will be engaged while reading articles that present contrasting views to this questions: Which gender are teachers more biased towards: girls or boys-- and how is this bias seen inside American classrooms?

B.R.E.W (Bodacious, Reading Every Week) is a routine that can help students make connections between classic literature and the modern world. Students are given a reading handout every Monday that contains nonfiction articles, memoirs, song lyrics, poetry, fiction stories or links to relevant websites. Students read, annotate and complete a written commentary on the assigned readings. On Friday, students discuss and debate the issues presented in the readings. Students will love these discussions so much that they will not even realize they are also prepping for State Tests!

1 cover page with clear directions for the students to follow
1 complete article about gender bias against boys
1 website link to an article about gender bias against girls (can be easily printed)
