Where the Boys Are…

April 22, 2011 Leave a comment

A classmate sent me this video after I talked about my project in class. It has made me think about what kind of culture we create in schools and how it affects both males and females. The behavior guidelines we have set for students are very narrow. I remember one student telling me, “you’re not my mom!” Though I certainly wasn’t, I think it must have been frustrating for him to have women breathing down his neck all day. I may be another female in the education profession, but I will think differently about how I design curricula materials so that it is not biased to one sex.
