Utilization of Teacher Workshops To Enhance Early Exposure to Gender Equity and Mathematics Education for Young Girls in Preschool Settings.
This practicum was designed to heighten preschool teachers' awareness of gender bias in the classroom and provide information on gender equity issues and the pursuit of the study of mathematics by girls. Its goal was to enable 20 preschool teachers in 3 preschool programs to increase their knowledge of gender equity and to use this knowledge in the classroom. Three workshops were presented to three separate groups of teachers that included experiential exercises on defining gender bias, making changes, and exclusion. Through pre- and post-tests and workshop evaluations, it was found that preschool teachers who participated changed their attitudes and demonstrated heightened awareness of gender-biased behavior in the classroom. Ten appendixes provide copies of teacher and counselor surveys, pre- and post-test questionnaires, workshop agendas and outlines, activity outlines, follow-up workshop outlines, and workshop evaluations.
