Welcome to the Gender Equity in Elementary Schools course. In these lessons, we will explore gender as an important component in the development of children’s self-esteem and self-efficacy.
Research has shown that gender bias is well established in children by the age of 6. So you truly are on the frontlines of helping children develop a positive and limitless idea of who they are and who they can become.
I hope that you have a team or a colleague that you can work with as you go through these lessons. But if you don’t, consider yourself the new ambassador for gender equity in your school! Spread the word and share the materials.
If you have questions or comments, or would like information about additional professional development on gender equity, please fill out the form at the end of this course or write to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you very much for joining the gender equity team. Happy new learning!
