Playing It Straight: Uncovering Gender Discourses in the Early Childhood Classroom / Edition 1 available in Paperback
In particular, this book uses alternative theoretical perspectives to focus on how young children are 'doing' gender in kindergarten classroom.
Rather than relying exclusively on biological and socialization theories of gender construction, Blaise breaks down theoretical barriers with new understandings of how gender is socially and politically constructed by young children.
