Girls in Tech Ed. Electives

Date: Fri Sep 24 1999 - 17:47:08 EDT

I am looking for a couple of good resources on slighting girls in education
(in particular science, mathand technology). I have a feeling that I may
have a small problem on my hands. After specifically targeting girls for my
elective classes this year, I still ended up with a class make-up of girls being
less than 5%. Yet, some young ladies have told me that although they requested
the course, they were given something else.

While I realize that I can not bank on the info given to me by students, it
still seems rather strange to me that I have attracted every child on ritalin in
the building to my elective class and still few girls. I'll be looking into the
actual numbers and students later next week.

In the meantime however, I am considering doing my PDP on attracting girls to
the tech ed electives. If you know of any good resources for me to begin looking
at, I'd appreciate the recommendations. Thanks so much!!
