Ow gender segregation in the classroom effects performance

These were the instructions given to me:

Choose a topic of interest to you in educational psychology and develop a paper that synthesizes the most salient points of the topic. Your text is a valuable source for topic ideas. Develop your paper throughout the semester. The paper should adhere to APA style, 8-10 pages, typed, double-spaced, title page, reference page, and minimum of 6 references from refereed education journals.
