10.00AM Saturday July 1
Professor Mara Sapon-Shevin (Syracuse University, US) will discuss how early childhood teachers can approach gender non-conformity, including the prevalent and often unquestioned gender-based assumptions present in society. The webinar will provide practical advice for teachers on what to say when children say things like “girls can’t be doctors” as well as providing ideas for books and music that can be used to address this topic. Mara is a specialist in diversity and social justice issues, including full inclusion, anti-racism teaching, bullying and harassment, cooperative learning, and using the arts to teach against oppression.
Please join us for this informative and interactive session. As always, there will be opportunities to ask questions.
