Description

Course ID 62872
In this workshop, we will learn about and discuss gender development in young children. Through discussions of how rigid gender roles and stereotypes can limit children's growth and self-expression, we will collectively develop and role-play strategies to facilitate expansive gender performances and to create inclusive classrooms which support a variety of gender expressions. We will also discuss a variety of ways to resist the perpetuation of harmful gender stereotypes – from rethinking how we praise children to how we organize the classroom – and strategies for working with family members who are struggling with their children's gender non-conforming dress or behavior.
