Grades Four and Eight Students' and Teachers' Perceptions of Girls' and Boys' Writing Competencies.
Peterson, Shelley
Reading Horizons, v40 n4 p253-71 2000
Presents teacher and student responses that show a privileging of girls' writing over boys' writing. Finds that girls' writing was viewed as more detailed, descriptive, and showing greater conformity to writing conventions. Indicates a need for conversations that question an emphasis on conformity in writing and that explore ways to nurture students' identified strengths in overlooked areas on evaluation rubrics. (SC)
