CAN WE SWITCH GENDERS OF STORY CHARACTERS?
Analyze characters and stories to identify stereotyping. Learners will examine the concept of character gender to evaluate bias in classroom story books. They are asked to read a story or play and change the gender of the character to see if it still makes sense. They must brainstorm how the story could be different and retell the familiar story with the new elements. Finally, they create illustrations of the character.
