Mexican-American concepts on gender and identity: A teacher's perspective in a fifth grade classroom

Cynthia Soto, University of Texas at El Paso

Abstract

This study primarily focuses on fifth-grade Mexican-American students and the factors that influence their views on gender and identity. Gender perspectives in the classroom have the potential to improve instruction and can positively affect students’ motivations to learn. Literature can also influence students’ gender perceptions and also contribute to gender bias in the classroom. This study works toward creating a non-biased learning environment.^
