A Sense of Self: Listening to Homeschooled Adolescent Girls by Susannah Sheffer

Recent research has shown that many adolescent girls come to distrust their own perceptions, to doubt themselves, to worry about what other people want of them more than about what they want of themselves. Furthermore, this research has charged that schools discriminate against girls and that school can be harder on them, in some important ways, than it is on boys.But listen to these girls: I like who I am, I like what Ive learned, I like what I know, says Andi. Im not going to let what people think influence what Im going to be, says Gabrielle. I know what I think and feel and I have my beliefs and dont let myself get pushed around, says Claudia.These are the voices of homeschooled adolescent girls-girls who learn at home and in the community rather than by going to school. Susannah Sheffer, through her interviews in A Sense of Self,urges us to listen, for what they say is strikingly different from the self-perceptions of girls in school. Anyone who teaches adolescent girls will find this book fascinating.
