So far I have done a bit of work on the assignment by looking at a few articles. I have not read them too thoroughly but did some skimming to see if they would have some information that I could use. So far I have looked at an article on dance education , transgender and nonconforming people and their representation, and one that focused more on how using technology in the classroom influences stereotypes that are taught. I am trying to get a wide range of subjects and age groups to look into so this is a start. I found one other article that addresses high school students a little more but did not see a PDF link for it so will need to go back to look again.
What these journal articles have shown so far is that much of the gender ideas and stereotypes come from the hidden curriculum. The source I have linked on transgender and nonconforming individuals took note of how in some subjects gay topics are to be covered but other areas of the LGBTQ+ community are not. In the dance education source I also read that some of the meanings students form because of the hidden curriculum are a result of Outcome Based Education, which we have already seen as having some other problems.
My future plans for this assignment are to mostly look a little closer at some of these sources, or at least at some of the sections in them. I also would like to look into that last source I mentioned in the opening paragraph and to also find other ones that focus on an older age group as this is the age I plan to teach.
