As mentioned before, different cultures have different expectations from their boys and girls; some expect the boys to look after parents when they grow up, some expect girls to be girly in their behavior in order to get a better job, husband, or status. Such expectations are reflected in a childs relation to other children and adults, which may present confusion within the school community.
For this assignment, you will develop a PowerPoint presentation on cross-cultural gender development concepts suitable for an audience of elementary school educators in a multicultural school district. You will choose two hypothetical cultures in this district in addition to the (perceived) standard North American culture.
Include the following in your presentation:
- Explain the distinction between culture, ethnicity, and religion in relation to gender concepts.
- Evaluate the impact of culture on childrens perception of gender roles.
- Provide concrete examples that illustrate both questions above.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
Support your presentation with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: 12-15 slides (with a separate reference slide)
Notes Length: 100-150 words for each slide
Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style where appropriate. Save the file as PPT.
