Summary "Science for Girls Successful Classroom Strategies looks at how girls learn, from the time they're born through both the informal and the formal education process. In her current role as professor of science education, Susan Goetz has surveyed hundreds of female elementary education majors in their junior and senior years of college. The results of her study show that the majority of these future teachers do not feel confident teaching science at the elementary level, consider themselves ill prepared to teach science in general, and have had negative experiences during their elementary, middle, and high school years in science classes. Therefore, it is necessary to better prepare our future female teachers, who will then model excitement, enthusiasm, and expertise in science instruction. Perhaps their girls will begin to show an interest in and achieve more in the sciences." "While the focus of this book is on science education, it also discusses current research in the area of general female learning styles. Furthermore Dr. Gibbs is careful to point out that the suggested strategies will benefit both female and male students. Containing lesson plans, learning strategies, and science education resources, Science for Girls is a great resource for classroom teachers, parents, and most importantly students."--BOOK JACKET.
