Gender Issues: An Activity File.
This activity file grew out of research of an "Images of Women in Development" project of the Centre for Global Education at the University of York, England. The activities are intended for students in the 8- to 13-year-old range to learn more about gender issues. The activities are divided into four sections: (1) awareness-raising activities in which stereotyping, including unconscious stereotyping, can be confronted and examined; (2) research activities that allow children to discover gender discrimination in their own environment; (3) group discussion activities that can be used in conjunction with the above activities; and (4) role plays and simulations that place participants in situation that enable them to experience the effects of gender inequalities, to take alternative perspectives, and to develop possible strategies and solutions for dealing with discrimination. Cross-curricular themes are encouraged. (EH)
