Through the use of lecture, power point, videos and group exercises we will explore the concept of gender in young children. We will explore the definitions and concepts of gender, gender identification and gender development, while examining the child’s perspective in the development of gender identity We will also look at the concept of gender identity and expression from the perspective of parents, who may be having difficulty with their child’s gender choices. Finally, we will discuss what we can do as teachers to support children in the classroom in the area of gender identity and development.

Discuss what we can do as teachers to support children in the classroom, as well as their parents in the area of gender identity and development
Explore the definitions and concepts of gender, gender identification and gender development and apply those definitions to possibly reshape or revise current teaching practices with the goal of enhancing children's needs.
Participants will learn to view the struggles of gender through the eyes of the child who may be struggling with a gender related issue and as a result participants will be able to provide appropriate interventions and learning opportunities despite their own possible discomfort.
