Teacher's Communication of Differential Performance Expectations for Boys and Girls.
Alpert, Judith L.; Hummel-Ross, Barbara
To determine whether teachers treat boys and girls differently with respect to providing response opportunities and giving feedback reactions, five teacher's arithmetic sessions and six teacher's reading sessions were observed and tape recorded three times over a four-week period. Differences in (a) quality of response opportunity for boys and girls, and (b) teacher feedback reactions with boys and girls were compared by means of the correlated t test. The findings indicate that at least with respect to two teacher behaviors, response opportunities and feedback reactions, boys and girls are treated similarly in both arithmetic and reading instruction in grade three.
