Abstract or Summary
  • This research was conducted to investigate perceptions of self esteem and the behavior of female science students in mixed gender cooperative learning groups. The research methodology used was qualitative in nature, which included a variety of data collection methods, including participant observation, student journals, interviews, video tapes of group interactions, cooperating teachers' journals, individual surveys, group surveys, and daily field notes. The data was analyzed by means of the constant comparative method. The analysis resulted in the following two hypotheses: 1. When male science students are allowed to dominate group activities female self-esteem and group interactions are affected negatively. 2. Female science students tend to be less openly critical of other students in their groups than male science students to maintain group relationships.
