PERIOD 2/PERIOD 5: MEDIA STUDIES 20
Learning Targets:
I can explain how the media influences gender beliefs.
I can explain how the media influences negative behaviours to those who don’t ‘fit the mold’.

Gender Roles:
As soon as you are born, you are influenced by gender messages. The culture into which you were born furthered defined your gender views. At some point in your life, you experienced a gender moment, a moment when you were aware that you were being shaped by the notions of gender present in your childhood, your culture, your society.

1. What gender messages are present in these children’s nursery rhymes?

2. Identify other ways in which gender differences are promoted in infants and children.
