Teaching Methods that Improve Retention and Reduce Inequality

Donald Terndrup - The Ohio State University

I will discuss the subject of inclusive teaching, which is a method that puts more structure into a course and gives clear instructions so that all students know what to do before, during, and after class; it also facilitates class discussion, so that everyone can participate.  I will review how these ideas are being implemented in my courses Astronomy 1221 and Astronomy 3350, and will discuss the goals for these classes in light of demonstrable achievement gaps in our program over gender.
