Shatamara Towler Professor Flowers EDUC 2120 25 June 2014 Gender Biases and Socialization in Education in “The Mona Lisa Smile” As teachers, we recognize that schools are places of cultural governments. Schools are a set of public, literal and optical traditions aimed to produce the creation of values and needs that affect people’s sense of their future identities and possibilities. The traditions and ideologies concerning women’s role in society in The Mona Lisa Smile, affects the students desires and identities, and the role of social change. The film speaks on the culture of young women in prestigious schools preparing to give up their education for the education of their children, and serve as wives to privileged males, rather than following their own dreams. Katherine Watson, the teacher, challenges the girls by portraying liberal ideas to the students.
Educators and parents must address this problem as early as preschool (O’Rourke, 2008). Morine (2009) stated that adults should teach conflict resolution sills to help children manage relationships. Anthony and Lindert (2010) explained that observing, connecting, guiding, and supporting children experiencing relational aggression may be useful for adults who are helping children navigate relational aggression. Additionally, educators should empower bystanders to intervene when they witness bullying behaviors. Children must know that it is important for them to help when their peers are being bullied (Swearer, Turner, Givens, & Pollack, 2008).
Introduction This is an analysis of a case that deals with the ethical dilemma of a school counsellor relating to the issue of confidentiality. The situation described here is not uncommon in the context of school counselling. This requires the counsellor to be able to balance the conflicting objectives of retaining the student’s trust for effective therapy, and keeping her legal guardians fully informed to mitigate the risk of a malpractice suit if the client does commit any self-harm. Case Facts Amy is sixteen years old, and is sent to the school counsellor following concerns from her year level coordinator. Amy is finding it difficult to concentrate in class, is continuously late to school, and often arrives to school dishevelled and unkempt.
How Parents Influence Gender Typing in Early Childhood Name Institution How Parents Influence Gender Typing in Early Childhood Many children in our society learn what it means to be a girl or a boy from their parents at an early age. Through the many activities they go through the daily basis, children adapt to gender roles. They internalize messages from the parents on gender parity at an early. The kind of gender bias or stereotype children are exposed to as they grow into adulthood, depends on the environment they are raised in. Therefore, parents create an environment that actively outlines the children’s gender roles throughout their childhood (Susan, 2007).
I learned that from the movie A Class Divided, there is a way to teach people about discrimination. The techniques used by the teacher in A Class Divided can help children at an early age learn about socialization. And by taking the approach the teacher did she created what Charles Horton Cooley referred to as the Looking -Glass Self. If we learn who we are by the interactions we have with others even just for one day, the views we start carrying within ourselves can change. (Schaefer,2007) The very fact that our self-concepts can change as fast as one day is an example of how much discrimination can mold a mind.

Feminists argue that the education system is just a primary preparation for leading into the future work force. They believe there are still gender differences in subject choice in schools. Colley (1998) reviewed this idea and found that despite all the social changes in recent decades, traditional definitions of masculinity and femininity were still widespread. However, Sharpe (1976, 1994) interviewed a sample of girls in the 1970’s and another sample in the 1990’s. She found that their priorities had changed from love and marriage in the 1970s to jobs, aspirations and careers in the 1990’s.
Substance abuse among women while pregnant is happening more frequently than it should. A good way to help educate young women about the danger of substance abuse while pregnant is to educate them while they are young. A program at high schools could be developed to show young women the effects of children that were born to a mother that abused drugs or alcohol. Also, a lesson on pregnancy, such as informing young women the importance of pre natal health care, and also the do’s and don’ts of pregnancy. Drug abuse is a major social and medical problem in the United States.
