Teaching Girls : How Teachers and Parents Can Reach Their Brains and Hearts, Hardback Book

Teaching Girls : How Teachers and Parents Can Reach Their Brains and Hearts Hardback


Women continue to be underrepresented in the high paying fields of science, math, and engineering.

They receive only about 80% of the salary of men holding similar jobs in any field and still face glass ceilings that limit their attainment.

How do we educate and empower girls to surmount these barriers and succeed throughout their lives?

This unique book reveals the kinds of teaching that engages girls intellectually, fosters their creativity, and bolsters their confidence.

Drawing on descriptions of great lessons written by nearly 2,000 students and teachers, it offers a practical, accessible guide to anyone who wants to find better ways to help young women succeed. The authors review the special qualities of lessons that resonate with girls and show how they meet their developmental needs throughout adolescence.

They also show how vital it is that such teaching happen within schools that help students learn about the numerous ways that gender affects girls' development.

The authors conclude by detailing how school leaders can create cultures that support this kind of great learning and teaching.
