I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Mine went by way to quick, as usual! All weekend I have been racking my brain trying to think about this question I will base my sequence of instruction around. I guess I’m having trouble focusing and narrowing in on just one specific topic. I, like Mandy, have always been interested in gender issues and this idea of “equality in our schools.” I am also, however, interested in how minorities are treated in our public school systems. Included in both these topics are the issues of tracking, and high stakes testing as tools to keep certain members of our society down. Does anyone have ideas on how to narrow this down to one specific question to work around??? Am I even on the right track? Any ideas or help will be greatly appreciated!!
