Acting It Out: Dramatic Play and Gender Performance in Early Childhood Environme


Event Description

Dramatic play can have a significant impact on a child's developing sense of a gendered self. This training will begin with an introduction to the history of dramatic play, focusing on how gender roles and stereotypes developed and function in this context, and will incorporate the identification of materials and activities to promote healthy gender development in dramatic play classroom spaces. The aim is to provide the children in our care with developmentally appropriate support for discovering and expressing who they are and how they fit in a world of gendered expectations. NOTE: This training was previously titled "Sugar and Snails and Everyday Tales: Dramatic Play and Gender Development" for SUTQ approval; the new title is for the Ohio Approved version. If you have already taken the previously titled training, you can not receive credit for a second time for this new title.
