9780335191239: Gender Play (UK Higher Education OUP Humanities & Social Sciences Educati)

You see it in every school playground: the girls play only with girls, the boys play only with boys. Why? And what do children themselves think about this? Breaking with familiar conventions for thinking about children and gender, Gender Play develops fresh insights into the everyday social worlds of kids in schools. Barrie Thorne draws on her daily observations in the classroom and in the playground to show how children construct and experience gender in school. She looks in detail at the play of gender in the organization of groups of children and activities.

Review:

"...highly recommendable for students who like books whichchallenge the conventionalframework of analysis and who want to learnabout a relatively neglected area." - Cambridge Review of International Affairs "...provides a very complete analysis of a number of salient issues which will be of interest to students of gender studies, political science, development studies, and area studies. The book is clearly structured, the material is well-organized and carefully chosen, and the reader is given a useful synopsis of theories of gender, democratization and development." - Political Studies "...useful and readable book." - Australian Journal of International Affairs "...an excellent introduction to the fact that there are gender issues in Third World (and Western) politics, for undergraduates of both genders." - The Journal of Commonwealth & Comparative Politics

Book Description OPEN UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1993. Paperback. Book Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. You see it in every school playground: the girls play only with girls, the boys play only with boys. Why? And what do children themselves think about this? Breaking with familiar conventions for thinking about children and gender, Gender Play develops fresh insights into the everyday social worlds of kids in schools. Barrie Thorne draws on her daily observations in the classroom and in the playground to show how children construct and experience gender in school. She looks in detail at the play of gender in the organization of groups of children and activities. Thorne argues that the organization and meaning of gender are influenced by age, ethnicity, race, sexuality and social class, and that they shift with social context. She sees gender identity not through the lens of individual socialization or difference, but rather as a social process involving groups of children. Thorne takes the reader on journey of discovery, provides new insights into the behaviour of children, and offers teachers practical suggestions for increasing co-operative, mixed-gender interaction.
