Gender Perceptions: An Analysis of Children's Creative Writing.
Romatowski, Jane A.; Trepanier-Street, Mary L.
Contemporary Education, v59 n1 p17-19 Fall 1987
Analysis of the creative writing of 180 first- through sixth-graders showed a very strong male predominance in stories and other evidence of stereotypic thinking and gender bias. Suggestions for educators to change such perceptions include: self-examination of gender perceptions and biases; assistance of children in self-examination and recognition of bias; and use of non-sexist instructional materials.
