Promise and Pitfalls of Reformed Instruction for Female Students 

written by Catherine H. Crouch and Noah D. Finkelstein

This workshop presentation examines how reformed instruction can both help and potentially hinder female students, depending on exactly how it is implemented. The first segment of the workshop is a review of the pertinent research on the origins of the under representation of women in the physical sciences and factors promoting the success of female students in science and mathematics classrooms. The second segment of this workshop is discussion of how to structure learning in classrooms based on insights from existing research and will identify implementation issues in need of further research.
