Preferences of Male and Female Students for TSA Competitive Events
Mitts, Charles R.; Haynie, W. J., III
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v70 n1 p19-26 Sep 2010
Arguably a major issue facing technology education (TE) since its inception has been its failure to attract and keep female students. This article explains one primary reason female students may be avoiding TE courses, presents a research-tested set of tools that TE teachers can use to help fix the problem, and offers a new realizable pathway toward TE's number one goal: technological literacy for all students. By tapping the full potential of the Technology Student Association (TSA), TE's long unintentional and, until recently, unrecognized and under-addressed history of male gender bias may be greatly diminished. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
