Jessie Culbertson SOC S312 Dr Mieko Yamada 25 September 2010 Chapter 4 Summary Chapter four discussed race class and gender When a person hears that a chapter is going to be discussing race class and gender Most people cringe and turn away from the subject when they hear it is going to be about these subjects It is important to know and learn about the different types of people that are on this planet so that life will be easier for everyone Chapter 4 discussed how men and women are portrayed in books and the affect they had on children s minds This chapter also discussed the stereotypes that different genders experience A third point mentioned is about standardized testing and how there is a visible difference in how men and women perform in different subject areas Content analysis is the examination and the analyzing of main characters in books Along with analyzing the main character they also analyze pictures stereotypes and many other factors that are related to the portrayal of sex roles The most recent study showed that improvements are being made in the portrayal of men and women in books Unfortunately many books still favor men over women Amazingly even men are favored over women in children s books Some of the books that stereotyped women in stereotypical sex roles were science social studies and math Some of the stereotypical roles that the book uses for women are jumping rope buying clothes and sewing It is important to note these ndings because these images and representations many times shape what the kids learn as far as how to be a boy or girl Hidden curriculum was also of huge discussion in this chapter Hidden curriculum is the things that children pick up without ever actually being formerly taught them They are taught these stereotypical roles in many ways Some of these ways include activities differential treatment and counseling Through the decades there have been some stereotypes that have developed about each sex These stereotypes are very similar and do not vary much all over our society Girls are expected to be docile cooperative gentle and nurturing Boys on the other hand are taught to be aggressive curious ambitious and competitive Along with stereotypes that are tacked to both roles so are expectations on how we do on standardized tests When it comes to standardized testing boys and girls perform at different levels Girls naturally do better in reading writing and literature Boys excel in their own areas which include math and science As far as scoring on theses standardized tests Boys did slightly better on the SAT s and the ACT s This chapter consisted of many more subject areas involving content analyses hidden curriculum and standardized testing I believe this chapter is crucial to read especially for those people who are thinking of becoming teachers or parents in the future The only way the stereotypical roles can be removed from society is by people making a conscience decision that we as society are no longer going to allow it and put are foot down But to be able to stop it we must rst have the knowledge to know that it still exists and know the stereotypes so that we can make sure not to positively enforce them
