Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to research how pedagogues in the American preschool work with girls and boys from a gender perspective. The research questions that are central in the study include how the pedagogues treat the children, how they form the pedagogical environment and if they bear a gender perspective in mind when planning activities. The method that is used in the study is qualitative through interviews. In the result the pedagogues state that they use the same phrases towards girls and boys, that all their toys and other materials are for both sexes and that they work towards getting the children to play in the same areas of the classroom. Although, the examples from the pedagogues show that they do make differences towards girls and boys in wordings and tone of voice, generalizations depending on sex and over-acknowledged transgendered behaviors. The conclusion of the study is that the pedagogues believe that they are creating a gender equal environment for girls and boys but the fact is that they make differences towards them. This creates an environment where gender norms are maintained.
