see value in behaving. In How Girls
Negotiate School, it is discussed how
females might give up their sense of
voice and opinion in order to fit in and
have relationships. Ive noticed this
during my placement, especially in one
young girl I will call Susan. Susan
frequently raises her hand, and is right
most of the time. However, sometimes
she will blurt out the answers, or tell
someone else they are wrong. During
snack time, Ive noticed some of the
students dont want to play with her
anymore. The more this is happening,
the quieter she gets in class.

B.F. Skinners theory of behaviorism
sticks with me as I think of these gender
scripts. When I notice changes like the
one Susan is going through, its easy to
see that the negative reactions from her
peers act as a punishment and make her
not want to continue her outgoing
behavior. On the opposite end, I also see
the praise her teacher gives her for being
so involved and passionate. Using the
behaviorism theory, I can see that the
mixed reactions of positive and negative
must be very conflicting for Susan.
