dc.description.abstractThe following is an account of my eleven-week student teaching internship at Ann Arbor Pioneer High School. In the quarter before this experience, I had done a fair amount of research on girls' self-esteem and on sex discrimination in education. As I entered the classroom, one of my interests was to see for myself how instruction and dynamics in the classroom affect girls and also to get a sense for how they view themselves in general. In conjunction with the same sociology class for which I began this research, I also read and helped lead a discussion on the book I would be teaching in my African American literature class at Pioneer, Gloria Naylor's The Women of Brewster Place. I was interested in how issues of race would be discussed and how they would play a role in classroom dynamics as well as in discussion of the book. Looking back on my experience, I can say that all of these issues were very much inter-related.en_US
