Media and Minorities: Unpacking Stereotypes: YOU Can Be Anything You Want To Be!

Mic Hamrick, Kindergarten, E.E. Waddell Language Academy

Curriculum Unit (pdf)


This Kindergarten unit is designed to help students understand that they are not limited in their likes, dislikes, opinions, and thoughts because of their gender. We will look at how gender is typically shown is storybooks and in media (advertisements). Students will have an opportunity to create a “ME” poster that they will look at over the course of the unit to determine for themselves how their gender views change during our study.
