STUDENT SAMPLE – Gender in the Education System

Mini-Doc by Caitlin and Alyssa (WRTG 3020 – Fall 2012)

Our project focuses on the idea that gender roles are quickly changing within our society and our education system needs to reflect this notion.

For our mini-documentary we targeted primarily teachers and parents. We wanted to educate and inform our audience about the importance of acknowledging the ever changing gender roles that are present in the education system today. Through personal experiences, interviews and research, we examined the true importance of accepting and acknowledging gender differences.

AMY’S NOTE: The project focuses specifically on the “princess boy” phenomenon, which might be of interest to some G&S students.
