Gender Issues in Art Education.
McCoubrey, Sharon, Ed.
BCATA Journal for Art Teachers, v40 n1 Sum 2000
The expectation of educators for more than a decade has been that they would be aware of and attend to gender issues. The British Columbia Visual Arts Curricula states "Gender-equitable education will initially focus on girls in order to redress historical inequities." However, it is important to be informed about the issues that adversely affect the males in art education. This theme issue contains seven articles: (1) "Editor's View" (Sharon McCoubrey); (2) "Gender Socialization: A Brother and Sister Draw about War" (Robert Dalton); (3) "Gender and Teaching Art in the Early Years" (Cynthia Colbert); (4) "Rape--A Gender Issue" (Colleen Kennedy); (5) "Broad Reach: A Group of Women Artists" (Sharon McCoubrey); (6) "Resources Review"; and (7) "The Arts and Academic Improvement: What the Evidence Shows" (Ellen Winner; Lois Hetland).
