The Missing Discourse about Gender and Sexuality in the Social Studies.
Crocco, Margaret Smith
Theory into Practice, v40 n1 p65-71 Win 2001
Misogynistic and homophobic norms in American society contribute to contemporary examples of social deviance. Educators must address these norms, along with violence, as part of the social studies curriculum. The paper discusses new conceptions of citizenship education, self-destructive gendered scripts, homophobia in schools, and a curricular shift for handling issues of gender, sexuality, misogyny, and homophobia within social studies.
