Whose Responsibility Is It? The Role of Administrators and Counselors. Math and Science for the Coed Classroom.
Campbell, Patricia B.; Storo, Jennifer N.
The National Science Foundation found that fewer female and male students are going with math- and science-related college majors, including engineering. This pamphlet offers tips and strategies for counselors and school administrators to assess how females participate in math and science courses in their schools. Sections of the pamphlet include: (1) "Is There a Problem Nationally?"; (2) "Is There a Problem in Your School?"; (3) "Scheduling: The Secret Weapon"; (4) "The Counselor's Role: 'Just Do It'"; (5) "School Climate: What's the Problem?"; (6) "Creating a Good School Climate"; and (7) "Creating Change: Some Things to Think About." A 5-item reference and sources section concludes the pamphlet. (EH)
