Building Self Esteem in the Language Arts Classroom: The Cybergrrl Approach.
Sauer, Christine
Why are girls, especially junior high school girls, continuing to learn in the shadows of their male counterparts, despite many teachers' continued attempts to treat both sexes as equal? Although one educator encouraged female participation in her classroom, she noticed two problems in particular that seemed to hinder the educational progress of junior high girls: lack of voice in the classroom and lack of technological skills. Her project proposes using "cybergrrl" Web pages (Web pages produced by a particular group of online feminists) to counteract these two problems and remove the mask of silence junior high school often places on adolescent girls. This paper first provides a rationale for the project and describes the cybergrrl Web pages. The paper then discusses the implementation framework of a cybergrrl classroom and outlines what objectives should be achieved in such a classroom. It discusses how to achieve gender equity using cybergrrls and gives the pedagogical implications for the project. Contains a 39-item "working bibliography." (NKA)
