Summary

A girl's relationships, social skills, academic abilities, career choice, self-concept, and confidence are all impacted and influenced by her experiences in adolescence. Her sense of self can influence the choices she will make related to academics, career and college planning, and social and dating relationships. Educators who work with and care about girls must recognize that the barriers to girls' success occur on individual and systemic levels. Our society places clear value on certain types of behaviors for girls and boys, and many students feel pressured to adhere to these expectations. In many cases, these expectations hold girls back academically, in careers, and in relationships. This book brings together extensive research, including the author's own, on the wide array of issues affecting girls of diverse backgrounds. Hinkelman deconstructs the factors that influence the decision-making and performance of girls, and provides evidenced-based strategies to counteract the negative impact of these factors while reinforcing positive values and ideals. This book seeks to aid educators in affecting real improvement in the academic achievement, well-being, and success of the girls they instruct.
