fucking awesome (chapter 2)

I am apparently on a mission to restore (my own?) faith in humanity this week! This entry was brought to my attention by the Most Fantastic Tideliar on the twitter. If you can read this without getting all warm and fuzzy then I don't think we can be friends:

One Teacher's Approach to Preventing Gender Bullying in a Classroom

My job is not to judge, but to teach, and I can’t teach if the students in my class are distracted or uncomfortable. My job is also about preparing students to be a part of our society, ready to work and play with all kinds of people. I found that teaching about gender stereotypes is another social justice issue that needs to be addressed, like racism or immigrant rights, or protecting the environment.

I think this is the first time ever I wished I lived in Wisconsin. And I'm gonna forward this link to Mini-G's preschool teacher. Just Awesome 😀

One response so far

    Awesome. It truly is. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy when I read these kinda news. One of the things hon studies in his PhD is gender stereotypes and trying to help people become aware that. He's very involved in educating everyone he crosses paths with, and I've learned a ton. I have to say, that because of him I really, really like media literacy, especially applied to school-aged children and what/how we teach them.
