"Life Is a Tightrope": Reflections on Peer Group Inclusion and Exclusion amongst Adolescent Girls and Boys
Warrington, Molly; Younger, Mike
Gender and Education, v23 n2 p153-168 2011
Feeling part of one's peer group is of crucial importance for most middle adolescents. Drawing on empirical research in different schools, this paper explores the components of exclusion in relation to gender, the consequences for those excluded by their peers, and the kinds of strategies engaged in by girls and boys in order to attain peer group acceptance.
