Girls in Schools: A Bibliography of Research on Girls in U.S. Public Schools Kindergarten through Grade 12. Third Edition.
Wellesley Coll., MA. Center for Research on Women.
This bibliography focuses on girls in public schools from preschool through 12th grade. Some citations referring to research on college students have been included because they have particular relevance for earlier schooling. The citations are arranged by topic headings. Each topic heading contains five categories: (1) books and book chapters, (2) journal articles, (3) other publications such as reports, pamphlets, etc., (4) papers, and (5) U.S. government publications. Topics include general references on sex equity issues, adolescent development, classroom interaction, curriculum, and disabled students. They continue with citations on dropouts, early childhood education and development, feminist theory, gifted girls and women, health issues, mathematics and science, and national statistics. Part 1 also includes the topics of race and ethnicity, sex equity, Title IX, sex and gender role socialization, sexual harassment, athletics, teen pregnancy, testing and assessment, vocational education, welfare reform, and women in leadership and educational administration. Part 2 deals with the education reform movement and includes works that provide key background on current issues of education reform and restructuring. It is suggested that the reader scan the entire bibliography before focusing on a single section because the placement of particular references may not be obvious. Section headings include references to other headings containing related material. (DK)
