Toward Eliminating Sex-Role Stereotyping in Early Childhood Classes
Chasen, Barbara
Child Care Quarterly, 6, 1, 30-41, Spr 77
Two studies on sex-role stereotyping in preschool children examined teacher and pupil attitudes. A survey of 30 pre-kindergarten teachers' beliefs and practices revealed teacher encouragement of expected traits. A study of 25 four-year-olds focused on self-image, presence of sex-stereotyped beliefs, and whether the teacher could effect changes. Stereotyped attitudes were found, and experimental intervention to improve the self-image of girls showed some result. (BF)
