|Abstract:||This contribution analyses the ethnography by trainee teachers, in the classroom. They are to observe situations that indicate the everyday conditions among children, how difference is made, or prohibited. The trainees will return with reports and narratives of certain themes, one of which is the attention given to the boys. |
My purpose is to clarify how the trainee teachers recognize and interpret how hierarchy positions of gender, class, ethnicity, religion, and age meet at certain crossroads. Clashes may indicate that forces of evaluation are on the move in society.
Aspects of gender intersect in recurring themes of integration, xenophobia, any prejudice among teachers, parents, and children. Every cohort focuses one theme, in turn: the supervisor as the ideal model of a teacher, terrible parents, terrible teachers, and how roles will be assigned to children, mostly ’the naughty boy’. The ordinary children seem to be female rather than male children.
