Abstract

This paper examines my role as teacher/researcher in perpetuating or trying to eliminate gender bias from my interactions with elementary school students. This descriptive study of a teacher/researcher interacting with students analyzes naturalistic data to answer the question, "How does a teacher/researcher perpetuate or disallow differential treatment of the students based on gender considerations?" Data included extensive email messages between myself and the students and video recordings of classroom interactions. Analysis of the data indicated that gender biases are more invisible and more difficult to eliminate than expected. Even in a classroom firmly grounded in feminist pedagogy, gender bias was almost impossible to eliminate. A feminist perspective informed the analysis.
