Hi Darerca,

Thanks for sharing some of the strategies you are incorporating in your class to address these stereotypes. A number of initiatives (including EDI) are now working hard to ensure more girls become involved in STEM.

You have mentioned literacy and drama as ways in which we can address this. I find that picture books can be a great way to address sensitive issues in a way that removes the child themselves from a particular situation. The book ‘Amazing Grace’ by Mary Hoffman is an excellent book for exploring both racial and gender discrimination.
