Gender Differences in Science-Lesson Behaviours.
Hacker, R. G.
International Journal of Science Education, v13 n4 p439-46 Oct-Dec 1991
Describes the interactions of high school girls and boys during coeducational science lessons. Analyses of the audiovideo recordings of 144 lessons taught by 12 male teachers indicate that girls were more likely to initiate classroom discourse. Findings did not support the hypothesis that gender disparity in science achievement in favor of boys results from differential treatment during science lessons. (Author/JJK)
