Unnatural Selection on the Unstructured Playground.
McGrath, Daniel J.; Kuriloff, Peter J.
School Community Journal, v9 n2 p41-65 Fall-Win 1999
A group of athletic sixth-grade girls who controlled a central niche on a progressive elementary school's playground were eventually displaced by a few highly competitive sixth-grade boys. Boys could dominate play sites because their taste for large, structured, hierarchical games reflected the school's own preference. (Contaiins 10 references.) (MLH)
