Children are bombarded through racial, cultural and gender stereotypes both in and outside the classroom. Consider the movies, television series and products (comprising toys and video games), which are marketed to young children. Submit a 2-3 page paper (not comprising title and reference page) arguing why you believe the movie, television series or product selected taints children's understanding of race, culture, gender and the message being conveyed. Comprise the following in your argument:
Critique one illustration from such categories, which you find out to particularly problematic in perpetuating stereotypes. Evaluate the potential impacts of such messages on children of diverse backgrounds in the early childhood classroom (think especially regarding the hierarchy describeed in Vivian Gussin Paley's book? Are they, in any way to blame for who is seen to be among the "bosses" and the "rejected"?) describe how the problem of stereotypes extends to commercial teaching material. Recommend policies to counteract the stereotypes children are exposed to outside the classroom as an early childhood educator?
