Heterosexism can be found in almost every social institution within

Heterosexism can be found in almost every social institution within society, especially amongst early childhood education. For our writing assignment this week, I want you to pick your favorite childhood storybook, and apply a heterosexist analysis to it. In a 1-2 page, please answer the following questions: 

Directions:

1. Provide a short summary of your children’s book. 

2. Does this story uphold heterosexist ideas? (i.e. are there any signs that heterosexuality is assumed/normal?)

3. Does this story uphold traditional gender roles/expectations? Why or why not? How can you tell?

4. Reflection: How do you think a child with non-heterosexual or non-gender conforming parents would feel while reading this book? 

5. How can early childhood education be more encompassing/inclusive/supportive of diverse sexual/gender identities?
