Real Men Don't Ask For Directions: Male Student Attitudes toward Peer Tutoring.
Wright, Robin Redmon
Journal of College Reading and Learning, v34 n1 p61-75 Fall 2003
Examines affective influences on male student attitudes toward peer tutoring. Indicates that gender-specific sociolinguistic characteristics as well as cultural pressures impacted male students' willingness to seek academic assistance. Finds that both male developmental mathematics tutors and male developmental mathematics students admitted to actions or nonactions based on stereotypically gender-driven cultural expectations. (SG)
