Girls in Science: A Framework for Action

Girls in Science: A Framework for Action

By: Elizabeth S. Chatman, Katherine Nielsen, Erin J. Strauss, and Kimberly D. Tanner

“Behind the stereotype of girls’ not doing well in science are some reasons, mostly based on one fact: They are often—and most often inadvertently—treated differently in the classroom. The authors of Girls in Science engaged in years of working under a grant funded by the National Science Foundation on this all-too-real problem of gender-equitable science teaching. What they found through working with students, teachers, and scientists— the three elements of the Triad community in which their research started—can change the way you teach and level the playing field of science education for girls.”
