Published on a CD-ROM, The Reader offers greater depth on topics, different points of view, case studies and video clips that allow you to apply your skills and insights to specific situations. The reader includes 48 readings; more than half are new in the 9th edition, 23 case studies, and 17 classroom videos.
How can instructors use The Reader? Some assign certain readings on topics they will explore in greater depth in class; others assign readings if they lack the time to cover them in class. The case studies are focused on real-life, practical, problems facing a teacher. They bring a reality test to the ideas in the text. You can explore them individually, in small groups, or in class discussions. The classroom observation videos share short clips of classrooms, teachers and students in action. They are designed to provide you with additional views of what teaching looks like. Just like the readings and case studies, the classroom videos include analysis questions to help you explore the issues raised. The inside front cover of the book includes a table of contents for The Reader. We hope you and your students enjoy and grow from the opinions and ideas that emerge from The Reader.

Myra Pollack Sadker (1943-1995) pioneered much of the research documenting gender bias in America's schools. She was Professor of Education and Dean of the School of Education at American University. She died while undergoing treatment for breast cancer in 1995. Through her writings and lectures, Myra Sadker alerted Americans to the academic, physical, psychological and career costs of sexism. She wrote the first book for teachers on the issue of sexism in 1973. Over twenty years later, in 1994, she coauthored the first popular book on this topic: Failing at Fairness: How America's Schools Cheat Girls. Between these two publications, Myra Sadker brought her cause for educational equity to a national audience. Along with her husband David, Myra Sadker spoke in more than forty states and overseas, giving hundreds of presentations and workshops for teachers and parents concerned with the negative impact of sexist behaviors. She wrote scores of articles on how to raise and teach children free from the debilitating impact of sexism. In her name, Myra Sadker Advocates was established to continue her efforts and create more equitable and effective schools. You are invited to learn more about Myra’s contributions and the work of Myra Sadker Advocates, including Myra Sadker Day – March 5th, by visiting the website established in her name: www.sadker.org.
