Abstract

Gender stereotypes pervade children’s literature. This action research project sought to alter stereotypical perceptions of gender roles held by a classroom of students in an urban elementary school through the introduction of nontraditional literature. Results suggested that some stereotypical perceptions could be altered through utilization and discussion of such literature.
