I wanted to return the favor and I knew which post I wanted to use as a guest post from Alistair. The title of his post is: "If you had to give it a gender..." With his post, he challenges us to think about how we "dress up" our classrooms in terms of gender stereotyping. And in so doing, what are the unspoken messages we give to the children in our care. His question sets up a useful exercise for us all.
Make sure you check out his other posts, too.
