Resources for Integrating Diversity and Ethical Reasoning into Classroom Instruction
This content helps guide technological inquiry for resources that address real-world issues facing global economies and communities and which encourage student discussion. Students’ interests in other fields may include biomedical, agriculture, business, or law thereby developing attitudes of research and investigation toward higher education and future careers.
There are websites abound to assist in developing resources for integrating ethical rationales and diverse thinking across content areas. Those that directly address a code of ethics in STEM fields include (but are certainly not limited to) the following:
- National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE)
- Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
- American Chemical Society (ACS)
Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy is a great and often used in-depth resource for various subjects in philosophy; including ethics.

Why So Few? Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
American Association of University Women (AAUW) is proud to have been selected by the National Science Foundation to conduct this study of women’s underrepresentation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Since 1881, AAUW has encouraged women to study and work in these areas through fellowships and grants, research, programming, and advocacy. From local science camps and conferences to our groundbreaking research reports, AAUW has a long history of breaking through barriers for women and girls.

- American Association of University Professors (AAUP) Faculty Gender Equity Indicators 2006
Martha S. West and John W. Curtis
AAUP has developed a set of numbers, gender equity indicators, for individual colleges and universities to illustrate women’s progress (or lack thereof) in pursuing academic careers. The four indicators represent different aspects of the overall status of women faculty, which at current levels amount to a series of accumulated disadvantages.
- Gender Inequalities in Education
Claudia Buchmann, Thomas A. DiPrete, Anne McDaniel
The terrain of gender inequalities in education has seen much change in recent decades. This article reviews the empirical research and theoretical perspectives on gender inequalities in educational performance and attainment from early childhood to young adulthood.
- Recursive Processes in Self-Affirmation: Intervening to Close the Minority Achievement Gap
Geoffrey L. Cohen, Julio Garcia, Valerie Purdie-Vaughns, Nancy Apfel, Patricia Brzustoski
Whether and how psychological interventions produce lasting positive consequences are critical questions for scientists and policy-makers. This report presents evidence of how interventions, even brief or subtle, can produce lasting benefit when targeted at important psychological processes.
- Differentiation of Curriculum in Heterogeneous Settings with Diverse Learners: Teacher's Conceptualizations and Practices
The purpose of this constructivist, qualitative inquiry was to explore how five elementary classroom teachers in heterogeneous settings with diverse learners conceptualize and practice differentiation of curriculum.
- A New Measure of Educational Success in Texas
National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS)
The purpose of this report, the first in a series that will be issued annually, is to begin to address this information gap by reporting the forward progress of students enrolled in the 8th grade in a particular state, Texas, which has the data to support such an analysis for three successive groups of 8th graders. While useful to track progress, such data are even more useful when benchmarked against data from other states.
- Women in STEM: A Gender Gap to Innovation
David Beede, Tiffany Julian, David Langdon, George McKittrick, Beethika Khan, Mark Doms
Our science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workforce is crucial to America’s innovative capacity and global competitiveness. Yet women are vastly underrepresented in STEM jobs and among STEM degree holders despite making up nearly half of the U.S. workforce and half of the college-educated workforce. That leaves an untapped opportunity to expand STEM employment in the United States, even as there is wide agreement that the nation must do more to improve its competitiveness.
