Girls and sport.....

Hannah Chappell-Dick's curator insight, June 14, 2013 2:35 PM

-gender bias during instruction: girls are rewarded for avoiding risk-taking behavior and taught to be cautious

-academically, "giftedness is regarded as rare in boys and is therefore more often noticed"

Buena Suerte!

Pablo Nunez's curator insight, November 17, 2013 2:47 PM

Very well written article on the tradition of wishing opponents good luck and the understanding of an underlying respect for sport, each opponents commitment, and good sportsmanship.
