SciGirls Strategies: Using Gender-Equitable Teaching Strategies and STEM Video Narratives to Engage Girls in Nontraditional STEM Fields
STELAR congratulates ITEST PI Rita Karl and project staff members Bradley McLain and Alicia Santiago of SciGirls Strategies: Gender Equitable Teaching Practices in Career and Technical Education Pathways for High School Girls for their recent publication in Connected Science Learning! The project is featured in the second issue of the journal, which is focued on professional development experiences. SciGirls Strategies appears as an "Emerging Connection" in the issue, describing how the team is providing CTE teachers with professional development on gender-equitable teaching strategies and role modeling.
With the overall goal of retaining more girls and women in nontraditional CTE-STEM pathways, our theory of action contends that if educators use more gender-equitable strategies and resources, more girls will be recruited and retained in technical STEM studies and careers.
