This poster session will feature best practices used with pre-service teachers in an early childhood literacy course to develop critical thinking skills, specifically in relation to representations of gender issues in literature and other text in the curriculum. The presenter of this session will showcase the various ways in which pre-service teachers addressed the issue of gender stereotyping and gender roles from a historical perspective. From critical discussions of picture books displaying gender stereotypes, to digital projects on gender representation, as well as lesson plan ideas on the topic of women’s suffrage movement in the early childhood curriculum, this poster session will rely on original student work. Intended audience of this session: classroom teachers and university instructors.
