Top 10 
Things you can do to promote gender equity in your classroom:

1 Call on girls as often as you call on boys.
   
2 Encourage girls to speak up in class.
   
3 Do not allow gender referencing in your class room.  Comments like, "This is 'Sissy stuff'." or "Only boys play sports", have no place in the classroom.
   
4 Go out of your way to integrate women in history in your lesson plan.
   
5 Provide gender-fair materials.
   
6 Show your enthusiasm in all subject areas.
   
7 Educate yourself of the differences in learning styles.  
   
8 Encourage girls at a young age to learn about non-traditional career areas such as math and science. 
   
9 Educate yourself and peers on gender bias in the classroom.  
   
10 Be a role model!
   

 

 
Note to Teachers:
Being aware of classroom inequities is just the beginning.  The most important thing you can do for a child of any age is help them increase and maintain their self-esteem.  Do this by celebrating their individuality and what they add to the world.
