Elementary Science Education: Looking through the Lens of Gender.
Koch, Janice
Initiatives, v55 n3 p67-71 Fall 1992
Notes absence of women scientists from textbooks, media, and popular literature as helping to maintain masculine image of science and sees dearth of role models as making it difficult for girls to imagine themselves as scientists. Addresses the ways in which elementary science methods courses can integrate a "gender agenda" to encourage more girls in natural science. (NB)
