Consider the significance of each ''ism'' in your professional and personal life, and write a summary essay, at least 3 pages in length, in which you address the following questions. 1. Sexism - If I had been a man instead of a woman or vice versa, how would my life have been difficult? What is the most salient experience in my life that is directly related to my sex? What new insights, professionally and/or personally about sexism did I gain from this article.
2. Heterosexism - What, if any, assumptions do I make about people whose sexual orientation is different from mine? What experiences of privilege and/or oppression in my life are directly related to my sexual orientation? What new insights professionally and/or personally about heterosexism did I gain from this article?
3. LGBT-ism- What do I know now about specific challenges LGBT persons are likely to encounter that I did not know before I studied the resources? What do I think when I hear people say that LGBT persons should not be permitted in early childhood settings? What new insights, professionally and/or personally, about lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgendered persons did I gain from these resources?
4. Ageism - When I think back to my early childhood years, in what ways did adults made me feel powerless or insignificant? When I imagine myself to be 90 years old, how powerful and/or marginalized might I feel - and why? What new insights, professionally and/or personally, about ageism did I gain from this article?
