Teaching Girls To Speak Out: The Female Voice in Public Contexts.
Baxter, J. A.
Language and Education, v13 n2 p81-98 1999
Discusses why many girls relative to boys experience difficulties when required to speak in formal, public, or unfamiliar contexts. While girls are recognized as good at using collaborative talk in small groups, the public voice is valorized in the world outside school. Reviews current debate in Britain on underachieving boys in light of the discrepancy between what constitutes success in school, and what constitutes success in the adult world. (Author/VWL)
