Equality in Action: a way forward with Persona Dolls


Equality in Action: a way forward with Persona Dolls has been written for early years practitioners, key stage 1 and 2 teachers, learning support staff, local authority advisers, students and their lecturers. Those who are experienced in promoting equality and those new to this important task will find much to enrich their work.



Drawing on evidence from hitherto unpublished British research, this book examines the impact of the Persona Doll approach and validates what has been assumed but not substantiated. It highlights the fact that the Dolls and their stories are engaging, thought-provoking, inter-active learning tools particularly when they are integrated into an anti-discriminatory curriculum. They enable foundation and key stage one and two educators to raise equality issues and empower boys and girls to stand up for themselves and others when faced with unfairness and prejudice.

Cogent arguments are presented in support of anti-discriminatory education. The power of the Dolls to challenge discrimination is explained in psychological and sociological terms and supported by case studies and hands-on guidance.
